We’ve been thinking about 2016, and all the losses that hit so hard. But for us there was one that will sting for time indeterminate: Lonnie Mack.

The Gibson guitar king blew our young minds when we snuck in to a subterranean Birmingham blues club way back in the 80s. Mack laid down the old, and new blues and gospel that had been missing from our lives til we discovered Wolf, Shines and Mr Mack.

We will forever mourn each one of our 2016 lost heroes but none registered so great as Lonnie Mack.
