BIG JACK JOHNSON passed away this morning; confirmed by Red Paden
Sadly, according to Red Paden of Red Lounge minutes ago, Clarksdale blues legend Big Jack Johnson passed away this morning (Monday, 3/14/11) "around 6am" at the hospital in Memphis. Arrangements are pending. The information will be posted here when available. Condolences go out to the family. R.I.P.

One of my best memories of Bluesfest...the man and his band The Oilers...what an incredible groove.
And one of my favourite albums "Katrina" with the Cornlickers.
Such a sad damn shame.

Oh no...say it ain't so. I agree Don and Bob...his show in '02 was great. Another great bluesman gone. It just makes BB's appearance this year so special. RIP.

Agree with the above comments.
Really enjoyed him & was hoping for a return visit. (rather than the other JJ who keeps coming back?)
