Farewell to a friend --
The blues world just lost
a great musician with the passing of Tony T. Long a
fixture on the midwest blues circuit, and a member of
the St. Louis band Cryin' Shame, Tony also claimed fame
as the guitar player sought after by Bo Diddley, Johnnie
Johnson, and many others! A personal friend to STLBlues,
he'll be missed by many in this music town. May his
music be eternal.
