  10. They don't make them like that anymore. But hope so.

    I saw him play in Halifax 1990. He seemed frail then, until he started playing, and playing. I recall he really stretched out his sets. Solid, professional and clear.

    It was an honour to see 'the real thing'.
    RIP Mr Perkins.

    May he rest in peace. Too many of the original Blues Greats are sadly
    gone. He certainly paid his dues and had a good long run.

    Terrible news!

    I'd quote George VI from "The King's Speech" but that kind of language isn't allowed here.
