After nearly 30 years there is yet a rip in my heart cuz he's gone.
How many here seen him live?  I used to (a lot) on Lincoln Avenue (or Halsted too I guess). 

I f there were one universal blues museum, all those other 'greats' might have big statues and plaques but Eddie Taylor he would be part of the building's foundation. IMHO.

It's said that he's sold more records since his fatal heart attack in 1985 than he did during is entire life, proof positive that everybody likes you better when you're dead.  He was the real deal for sure, and never really got the proper respect he deserved because he was always more or less caught in the shadow of Jimmy Reed.
They call it the Blues, but the shit makes me SMILE!

Yep, very cool guitar player/singer.   Cool tune!
