RIP Homesick James

Posted on: Tuesday, Dec 19, 2006

I hear that another early generation bluesman has passed away.  More details when I hear them.

The news has been confirmed but I have not found a good obituary yet.

All of ’em gone but me, I’m still hangin in there” – Homesick James.  Sadly, no longer true.

UPDATE 19 December 2006

William Henderson, professionally known as Homesick James Williamson, died Wednesday December 13, 2006 around 11:15 pm, resting at his home in Springfield, Missouri. Homesick James was 96, and was battling a prolonged illness. His last professional gig was the Maryport, England Blues Festival July 29, where he performed as a headliner along with Robert Lockwood, Jr. and Honeyboy Edwards.  He looked sharp and played well, but was obviously ailing.
