    heard he passed away this morning at a hospital in Memphis...

    Not a bass player, but one of the best blues musicians ever IMO......nothing like the hill country blues.

    the hills will be weeping tonight R.L.....we'll miss you

    RL Burnside scared the hell out of me the first time I heard him. After I figured it out, I really liked what I heard.

    RIP. :(

    damn. I'll have to give "going down south" a spin when i get home tonight. I should also buy "ass-pocket full o' whiskey", or some other album on the way home. Any suggestions? Maybe "Burnside on Burnside".
