Louisiana blues legend Coco Robicheaux, originator of the style known as "hoodoo blues," passed away on Friday night, November 25, 2011 at the age of 64 years. Robicheaux had collapsed at the Apple Barrel club in New Orleans, and was later pronounced dead upon arriving at the Tulane University Medical Center. Robicheaux was a mainstay of the New Orleans music scene since a teenager. Robicheaux was a familiar figure in the clubs of Frenchman Street in New Orleans, performing frequently and just hanging around when he wasn't onstage. Robicheaux appeared eight straight years at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, and was also a regular performer since 1995 at the French Quarter Festival.

Der Blues wurde deshalb erfunden, weil die Seele vieler Menschen sonst noch schneller verkümmert wäre!
