RIP RL

Just found out that R.L. Burnside has passed away. The news is up at Fat Possum.

Burnside was a fantastic musician with a bluesman's life, and he continued to be innovative (including his melding of blues and sampling) and a touring force late in life. Check out Wish I Were in Heaven Sitting Down as a good starting point.
