RIP Pinetop Perkins

Pinetop Perkins passed away, 97 years young. I am amazed his solo career did not start sooner. From the Australian.
At 75 Perkins was invited to record his first album as a frontman on After Hours (1988). He followed it with Pinetop's Boogie-Woogie (1992), on which his stomping piano style was backed by a superior cast of blues guitarists including Matt "Guitar" Murphy, Jimmy Rogers, Hubert Sumlin and Luther Tucker.
