Hubert Sumlin at 2010 Pocono Blues Festival

2010-0724 Pocono Blues Day 2-2173, originally uploaded by NoVARon.
Just found out that Hubert Sumlin just passed away at the age of 80. The 2010 Pocono Blues Festival was the last time I saw Hubert when he was part of an All Star Chicago blues review that included Willie Smith on harmonica (and Willie recently passed away) and Bob Stroger, in the back, was on bass.

Hubert was best known for his association with Howlin' Wolf as well as on sessions with such other blues legends as Sunnyland Slim. He was alas one of the nicest folks you could ever want to meet which is why he was beloved in the blues community.

Here is Hubert and Sunnyland Slim
