I was sorry to learn that Elizabeth Taylor died last night. She was 79 years old. It really does seem like the old guard is fading away, doesn't it? She was around as long back as I can remember.
I was also dismayed to read that Pinetop Perkins passed away. Pinetop lived in Austin and really was a blues legend. He was 97 years old and held the distinction as the oldest Grammy winner. BB King said he was the last of the great Mississippi Bluesmen. He's been a regular fixture at the Austin blues clubs playing regular gigs up to last month. He was believed to be the last of the old-time Delta blues musicians still performing. He said that playing the blues is what kept him alive. Mr. Perkins also loves fast food and was a smoker until the day he died. " Two cheeseburgers, apple pie, a cigarette, and a pretty girl is all I want" said Perkins an interview last year. It's hard to argue with that kind of longevity.
