Rest in Peace, Willie...

This man was a living legend. Now he is truly a blues legend. On March 8, 2009 he passed on to the Promised Land. He was a friend to me and mine, and to many around the world. This album is a classic. Buy it and support this man's legacy. He was one of a kind. "Willie's Testament" is a must-have, it is a monologue in which he tells about his blues philosophy. The whole album is beautiful, wonderful blues magic from a true master. "I Am The Blues" is my personal favorite. Buy it and soak up the blues vibe from this kind hearted saint of a man. His music was his soul, his life. He will be sorely missed by all of us in Macon and all his friends, family, and fans worldwide. Thank you, and God bless you, Mr. King. -James Stevens
