Blues defines the soul of a people. Thanks for sharing your talent, time, and lot of gret blues.

Mr. Sam Carr was well known for his creative and imaginative way in playing the drums.
At John 5:28, 29, Jesus said: “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.”
Mr. Carr may be gone for now, but soon he has the Hope of a Resurrection.
Keep hope alive!

For Sam...a drummer who was considered an anchor in the blues scene that continues to draw fans to the poverty-stricken Delta region where the music form was born.

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

I spent 6 months in Clarksdale Ms in 2005 and had the opportunity to see Mr Carr perform many times. One evening at Reds I sat down with him and had beer and Barbeque before he played with "T-Model" Ford. He talked about some of his history with me as if I was someone he had known for years. It was quite a memorable experience for me.

I am sad to have learned of the passing of this ledgend.
