So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
Long John Baldry died last night, at only 61 years old. For those who don’t know him, this may be meaningless but Long John was a blues legend, and classic rock bands like Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones and performers such as Elton John admired him.
My favourite Long John story came from my friend Al Graham who told me once about him singing at Al’s 40th birthday party. Al sings in a blues band, and knows everybody on the Toronto scene. He’s a bit of a legend himself.
Like all legends, his music was less appreciated than it used to be by people not in the business. Now’s your chance - get online and steal some while it’s fresh in your minds, you might just find something you’ve missed without even knowing it.
Long John, you’ll be sadly missed by all.
