James Cotton RIP
« on: March 16, 2017, 04:55:40 PM »
81 years old, of pneumonia.  I saw him at a small club in 1976.  The last of his era, I think.

Oh what a shame.   I think he is the last of the old ones.

Rest in Peace James Cotton.

He was amazing! What a unique contributor to the blues harmonica and an influence on so many of us who play. Check out this song; one of his best instrumentals:
