The first time we met him was in our city Dijon (France) at the yearly Blues Festival. Since this date, he came back several times. You'll miss us Mr Magic Slim, but your music is still alive.
I am so saddened and sorry to hear of the loss of this wonderfully talented bluesman. I enjoyed hearing him many times here in Lincoln, and I know the good Lord God Jehovah has a place in heaven for Magic Slim.

I first heard Slim at Biddy Milligan's on North Sheridan Road in Chicago. I was hooked!! That was 1978. I have had a total connection with his music ever since. Absolutely Glorious!
He was the greatest in my book of blues legends!I will miss seeing his great shows and having a glass of JD with him! Rest in peace!

I had the honor of meeting Magic Slim twice when he performed at Callahan's in Michigan in 2011 and 2012. He was a fabulous performer and a warm and down to earth man. He played "Kansas City" by special request for my fiance and me to dance to, and it is a special memory that I will forever treasure. My condolences to the family of Magic Slim. He will be missed.
Sincere condolences to family and friends.Eccl 9:5.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
The world is full of things to makes us sad, things that bite to the core of who we are and when we hear it in the form of a song especially the blues we know that felling. The bible teaches us how to overcome sadness and to have a joy beyond anything we could image. It gives us the hope to live in a time when sadness and sorrow will be a thing of the pass.
RIP BROTHER.Peace & Love.

I am honored to have meet him and spent time with him. I am deeply saddened at his passing the world has lost a truly great man.

My condolences to the Holt family for their loss. Morris has touched so many hearts that his life was truly magical.
Rest In Peace Slim,
This is a monumental loss to the blues. I knew Slim well in Chicago, and was around him a lot in the '80s. I worked with him at Florence's, and booked him at the Wise Fools Pub. I knew is brother Nick, his bass player at the time, as well. It was an honor to stand next to the big man on the bandstand. Lefty Dizz and Magic Slim, both born in 1937, had a special kinship, and were good buddies. Now, all three of the most important musicians that I worked with - Lefty, Slim and Valerie Wellington - are all gone, but will never be forgotten. There must be one houserockin' jam session going on in blues heaven right now. My sympathy and condolences go out to the Holt family, his friends and fans, as well as the many who knew and loved Magic Slim around the world. I'm feelin' very blue this morning.
My condolences to the Holt family for their loss. Morris touched so many hearts with his music and personality that his life was truly magical.

When I heard of the passing of Magic Slim it made me think about the value of the moment, and some of the moments that will never be forgotten. Slim made the world and the world of music a better place. I viewed him as a man of the people and a true giver. He gave so many of us some real magic moments to remember and some real teardrops today. Sincere condolences to the family. May he live on in our hearts and minds.
