News In The Blues

Hubert Sumlin As everyone knows by now Hubert Sumlin passed away December 4, 2011. Hubert was nominated for a Grammy four times, most recently in 2010. Rolling Stone recently placed him at #43 on their 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. In 2004 he had a lung removed and in 1999 he lost his wife Willie “Bea” Reed, whom he married in 1982. It is ironic that a man known for his joyous nature and big heart would die of heart failure.
