    Wow, he had really, really bad tastes in furniture.

    Neat :)

    Speaking of SPL meters...
    I've been meaning to get one of these things since before RS "closed". I feel guilty because my purchase could probably have floated them another year. Is this still the one to get, or are other "cheap inaccurate" models worthwhile as well?

    Probably the booze and drugs; I like to think positively about the guy.

    This is his "sh*t that I haven't used in years" barn sale. There isn't anything in there that looks like it might have been part of his later life.

    The pro gear, bottom of the line Yamaha club speakers.. I am surprised at that. Even the board is a 12 channel yammy that I use for my DJ work.

    wow,I did not know he passed.I remember seeing him at Buddy Guys Legends club here in Chicago in early 2016 I believe. He came often..I did not know how great of a pianist he was until I saw him live in person. Room full of maybe 60-70 people or so.Too small for a legend in my opinion. Many times he would stop in between songs and tell a story about either the song he played or was going to play. He stayed and signed autographs and I was lucky to shake his hand. Still had the big bushy white beard and hair under his cowboy hat which he said he got from Stevie Ray . He had a big following among fellow artists. Many of who played on his early albums. Rock and Roll hall of famer..He will be missed.Great memories!
