Played with Dale Hawkins, erroneously credited with writing parts of Suzie-Q but did contribute to My Babe and Grandma’s House. Eventually released his own Loading Zone which contained Green Onions and Ramon’s Blues.

What happened to:

He re-emerged in 1986 with When a Guitar Plays the Blues but his life turned tragic. Described as a “shy, recitent” person he attempted suicide on multiple occassions before being arrested for drunk driving in 1988, whereupon he finally succeeded, hanging himself in his jail cell.
