Very sad. A great guitarist who struggled enormously with substance abuse. He has to be praised for sticking to his blues principles and not going mainstream, even though his life would probably have been much easier if he had.

Sad news indeed, if not unexpected.

Saw him live a couple of years ago and he was very frail then.

However, he certainly lived a life and was a great blues guitarist.

Saw him last year, a very pale and frail figure, looking old beyond his years, a consequence of prodigious drug abuse throiughout most of his adult life, and unable to stand or play his trademark Gibson Firebird for more than a couple of numbers. His passing is sad but not unexpected. Bye Bye Johnny;
