Joe Willie "Pinetop" Perkins
It is with deep sadness that we announce that Pinetop Perkins passed away on
Monday, March 21, 2011 at his home in Austin, TX.

Arrangements are pending and will be announced as soon as they are formalized.

This is so sad that a total legend has passed. I visited the plantation that he worked on as a tractor driver only last year. A numbing experience.
Even had a beer in the old building that has been converted to a bar/blues club..........a club he appeared at for a gig every year!!! The club had the original Blues Brothers car in the car park!!!!!
I have a photo standing beside his Blues Trail plaque, this will be treasured.
His latest album with Willie 'big eyes' Smith is superb and won him a grammy............what a legacy he leaves behind............he played with everyone including Muddy.
What a loss.

I don't want to hang up my rock n roll shoes
I get a good time feeling every time I hear those blues.
