First saw him in Long Beach at the Cinnamon Cinder 1969, great show, great voice.

Sad to hear. Used to listen to his music when I was a teen in the 50s. RIP.

(My hypocrisy goes only so far)
Listen to Bobby sing Stormy Monday
and you can't miss where the term 'soul music' came from.
RIP to one of my long time favorites.

It seems like I can’t even turn around without somebody dying.

I saw him in Winston Salem, NC opening for BB King. By far, the best concert of my life. RIP BBB.
The world is a little quieter today and much sadder.

Wish I would’ve seen that BB King concert w/ Bobby opening. Favorite opening for BB King I ever saw was Edgar Winter. Wow, what energy and virtuosity!

Weird thing is, I thought of that concert this afternoon. Haven’t thought of it in 20 years but thought of BB King and Bobby Blue Bland.
