News: Farewell to Smokin’ Joe Kubek
Posted on: Monday, Oct 12, 2015
Sad to report the passing of Texas guitarist, Smokin’ Joe Kubek, at the age of just 58.
Reports state he had a heart attack over the weekend, prior to going on stage at a festival in North Carolina.
Born in Grove City, Pennsylvania, Kubek grew up in the Dallas, Texas area. In the 1970s during his teen years, he played with the likes of Freddie King and in the 1980s began performing with Louisiana-born Bnois King – a partnership which last right through to this day.
