I would also like to offer my condolences to the family of Bobby Blue Bland. He was my absolute favorite blues singer. His music always soothed me. I'd listened to “You've Got to Hurt Before You Heal” & “Memphis Monday Morning” during my time of heartbreak or bereavement. I also had the pleasure of seeing Mr. Bland sing in 2001 at the WC Handy Festival in Florence, AL. Mr Bland, you are a true LEGEND and will sorely be missed.
