Louisiana Red, otro genio del Blues que nos dejaba ayer 25 de febrero, a los 79 años de edad en Alemania donde tenía su residencia habitual desde 1981.
Maravilloso con la guitarra y la armónica, siempre nos quedarán sus más de 50 álbums, la delciosa “Sweet Blood Call” y sus canciones de pura sangre en el Blues de raíces, alumno aventajado de Muddy Waters, Elmore James, Robert Nighthawk, Lightnin’ Hopkins y John Lee Hooker.
