David Honeyboy Edwards – R.I.P

The last of the ‘Great Mississippi Delta Bluesmen’ passed on in peace on 29th August 2011.  He was 95 years old (born in 1915) and still touring.  David had a photographic memory and remembered being there when Robert Johnson drank the poisoned whiskey that did him in.  ‘The world don’t owe me nothing’.  R.I.P
