Following the Burnside story, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown passed away Saturday. I hesitate to write too much because I would end up repeating a lot of what I said about the Blues and American genres...

you can read about it here...

It should be noted, however, that Mr. Brown did not want to be tied down to just one genre. While I don't really like it when Blues artists mix in genres... Gatemouth did it really well... and really, who wants to tell a legend what he can't and can do?

It is sad that the hurricane had to take so much from him on his final days...

Please take the time to read the newslink if you want to read a little about his life. Strange... we lose musical treasures faster than we can replace them.
