Snooky Pryor Passes

Posted on: Thursday, Oct 19, 2006

A sad loss today.  I hear that the legend Snooky Prior passed away this morning.  I do not know any more details right now.

There are some Snooky pages for background information AMG and Wikipedia.

Always loved Snooky’s stuff – saw him the first time I ever went to Colne – it was a one-day event at Whit, with the likes of Otis Grand, Robert Ward and The Nighthawks on the bill. Snooky and his band were great – with Snooky Junior on the bass! His two Antone’s releases are killers, with great players from Texas and Chicago – the likes of Denny Freeman, Derek O’Brien, Pinetop Perkins, not to mention Duke Robillard and Junior Watson! The Harpbreakers always used to do a cracking “Keyhole In Your Door” – Nigel used to get fed up of me shouting for it! Another good one gone, but a good knock at 85!
