Elmore James

Elmore James was one of the all-time great blues musicians. He was an incredible guitarist.

Here’s the entry on him at Find a Grave. It has this incredible sentence:

The Elmore James headstone was paid for by Phil Walden of Capricorn Records in 1991 who agreed to do so while under the effects of anesthesia administered by his dentist, who was also the person who sculpted the bronze statue of James that adorns the headstone.

Elmore James and Ike Turner!
