Pinetop Perkins
Joseph William Perkins, July 7, 1913 – March 21, 2011 Grammy award winning blues pianist Pinetop Perkins has died at the age of 97 from Cardiac Arrest at his home in Austin, TX. He became the oldest-ever Grammy winner only last month winning for best traditional blues album. In a career spanning eight decades, Perkins toured with Ike Turner in the 1950s and later with Muddy Waters. Perkins also won Grammy awards for Lifetime Achievement in 2005 and for Best Traditional Blues Album in 2007. Despite his age, he played regularly at blues clubs in the Austin area. His agent Mr. Hugh Southard told the Associated Press news agency he had more than 20 performances booked this year. "He is the blues, he is the epitome of it, he lived it, breathed it. His tastes were simple - two cheeseburgers, apple pie, a cigarette and a pretty girl was all he wanted," Mr Southard said.
