The Lancashire Evening Post newspaper is reporting that British blues pioneer Keef Hartley passed away on Saturday, November 26, 2011 at the age of 67 years old. Hartley's cause of death has yet to be established. Hartley is a little-known but integral member of the British blues and blues-rock scene of the 1960s, joining John Mayall's Bluesbreakers in the mid-1960s and appearing on several Mayall albums before forming his own Keef Hartley Band in 1968. The Keef Hartley Band released five albums of brilliant blues-and-jazz-influenced rock 'n' roll in three years. Quelle:http://blues.about.com/od/bluesnewsfaq/t...-In-2011.01.htm
Der Blues wurde deshalb erfunden, weil die Seele vieler Menschen sonst noch schneller verkümmert wäre!
