R.I.P. David Honeyboy Edwards

DaGoddess @ 16:06

David “Honeyboy” Edwards, who just turned 96 in June this year, has passed away. He died of congestive heart failure. Honeyboy was a blues pioneer, having played with many of the Delta’s original trailblazers, including Robert Johnson. For me, Honeyboy was a link to a personal musical past as well as that of historical significance. The world is a quieter place now without him, but heaven just got a whole lot cooler.

All of you regulars are well aware of my love for Honeyboy and know this is weighing heavy on my heart today.

Please say a prayer for a man who helped lay the foundation for the music we call rock ‘n’ roll.
