R.I.P. Little Milton & HCB 8-04-05

"Little" Milton Campbell passed away today. While he never achieved the level of famous as some other 2nd generation bluesmen, Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, B.B. King, his influence is felt in alot of modern music. Bonnie Rait, Gov't Mule, G. Love the and the Special Sauce all have listed him as an influence on their music. I got to meet him a few years back at a wedding in Jackson. The son of somebody a Malaco Records was marrying a girl I knew. Milton came because he was recording for Malaco at the time. He was very nice man and a great showman.
