Two legends who passed away on this day

Posted on: Saturday, Nov 25, 2006

Let’s all remember the legendary Albert Collins – the master of the Telecaster who passed away on this day in 1993 in Las Vegas, NV – Albert was 61.

It is said that Albert Collins was the bluesman who played to the largest audience ever – he was one of the guests who played at the original Live Aid concert in 1985.

There are many YouTube clips of Albert – take a look at this search and choose your own favourite.
Strangely though, there are no clips of his big screen appearance in the 1980’s move “Adventures in Babysitting
Today also marks the passing of the huge voiced RnB legend Big Joe Turner who left us in 1985 aged 74. There is one clip of Big Joe that I can find but unfortunately it’s not a live performance but a lip synch from a movie.

UPDATE : Whoops a day late with this one – 24 Nov is the passing date of Albert Collins and Big Joe TurnerÂ
