I Did Not Know That Solomon Burke Had Died..............

I had him playing on the computer here and got to wondering if he was touring in this area. Found out he ain't touring around here or anywhere else again.

Damn. Seems he died October 10th in the Amsterdam airport right after he got off a flight.
Did not know that.

Lots of folks never heard of him, though they may have heard some of his songs.
Huge talent. Hell, he was a HUGE man. I'm sure that had more than a little with explaining why he died, but he was 70 years old so maybe not.

So here's a few tunes for ya-

That was Patty Loveless in there with him.

Got Soul? Oh hell yes.

Here's the Blind Boys of Alabama helping out on this one-

I like the nice guitar licks and melody in this song-

Yeah, all around great singer.
Rest Easy Big Fella.

Gratuitous Picture for a Thursday Night-
