: Little Milton to take that final ride in a Cadillac...

Bluesman "Little" Milton Campbell has passed away at age 70.

I'm sure most of you never heard of him, but down here he's regarded as one of the best. Milton came from the same area (within about 15 miles) that B.B. King did.

He had a great expressive voice, was a self-taught guitarist, and an electrifying performer. One of my all-time favorites, along with B.B., Bobby "Blue" Bland, and Albert King. I saw him live on Beale Street once, and you just don't forget something like that.
