So sad to hear this news. What a wonderful old gentleman with a wicked glint in his eye. I remember hearing him in Chicago in 2005 replying to another legend Sam Lay when asked about the young blonde girl who was pushing him around in his wheelchair … ” It’s that viagree that helps !”

His Homecoming Festival at Hopson’s Plantation the day after The King Biscuit Festival has always been a high spot for the BITNW away team and Pinetop would always have the time to chat and sign autographs – a very sad loss indeed. God bless him.
