Just a shame. Another great gone that I never got to see.
If you could only have one Gatemouth CD in your collection I would recommend "Long Way Home", Gitanes 1996 w. special guests E.C., Ry Cooder, Sonny Landreth, John Loudermilk, Leon Russel and Maria Muldaur. It was one of the first I replaced after I was ripped off several years ago...I'm listening to it now as I write. Great stuff.

Rest in peace, Gatemouth.

I know Gatemouth from seeing him on country music TV shows in the '70s and '80s. Great musician, and was obviously well respected by the Nashville musicians.

Saw him at Birmingham Town Hall with Buddy Guy & Junior Wells, brilliant, Sad he's gone, but it's all a one way trip and he had a good one.

I heard him for the first time just a few weeks ago, he was on a documentary about New Orleans I think.

Very sad.
