Bobby "Blue" Bland Dies near Memphis

Tue Jun 25, 2013 1:30 am

The great singer Bobby "Blue" Bland has died in Germantown, a suburb of Memphis. He was 83.

He was a remarkable singer, who Peter Guralnick credits with reigniting his own career. (In a long blog entry.)

He was an integral part of the Memphis music scene. Here he is with two famous Memphis musicians, to the left of him, looking at the photo:

His style was very conversational, where he dispensed a tender wisdom with deep feeling. Sometimes he argued with himself, weighing reason and emotion. He was one of my favorite singers of all.

This is a great one:
