2016 Grim Reaper’s Haul: Enough is Enough!

2016 is turning out to be memorable for all the wrong reasons. The Grim Reaper has been at it again.  Tearing his way through the music industry.  Just in the last week he’s had Leon Russel, Leonard Cohen and today Mose Allison.  What a bloody year!   In 2015 we lost Lemmy,  Errol Brown, B B King, and Allen Toussaint, so maybe every year is a good year for the Reaper.  But really, we think he’s had his share this year.   Some of these guys were old, we know they had to go some time.  But please no more!  We asked our resident muso/social media manager to put together a bit of a playlist for us.

Influential jazz and blues musician, Mose Allison, who died today
