very sad - another highly influencial, major talent gone

Chicago bluesman Hubert Sumlin, guitarist for Howlin’ Wolf, dies at 80
Besides playing on some of the most amazing and influential blues songs of all time - his work with Howlin' Wolf is especially majestic - Sumlin released a solo album not long ago that is truly solid. Very sad to see him go at the too-young age of 80.
