Imagine having gotten guitar lessions from ROBERT JOHNSON while RJ was shack'in up with your old lady!


The stuff of legend!

I used to hear him play every week at a little joint in Cleveland Heights called "The Flipside" during the mid to late 70's. He's been holding down a weekly gig at a downtown blues club until just before his recent stroke. At 91 he could still rock the house!

At a relatively young 75:


Still young at 91:

Fabulous player and a nice guy. He'll be missed.
