I met honeyboy in 2003 when

I met honeyboy in 2003 when he played at the bar I worked at in Saskatoon saskatchewan. The man had a warm richness to his laughter and his voice poured out like honey indeed. I knew at the time that I was very lucky to see this originator of the blues play and I am thankful for his contribution to the blues and the world of music in general. No long face sir, rest well.
