Rest in Peace Pinetop Perkins.

We lost a legend yesterday.

Joe Willie "Pinetop" Perkins passed away in his Austin home.

"He was one of the last great Mississippi Bluesmen. He had such a distinctive voice, and he sure could play the piano. He will be missed not only by me, but by lovers of music all over the world"  - BB King

Here's a special that was done a few years ago when Mr. Perkins was 95.
