On March 20th, Mel Brown passed away in Kitchener, Ontario. He had lived in Canada for several years and was considered the "BB King" of Canada.
He used to come here in the 70''s when he was on the road with Bobby Bland. His girlfriend, Angel, was from Crawford. I met him in 1976 at the music store and played with him several times over the years. Several folks from around here met and knew him. Here''s his bio on line: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mel_Brown
