Guitar Greats To Honor Blues Man

Blues man Hubert Sumlin passed away in early December.  While the name might not be widely recognized outside of Blues circles, Sumlin was revered by a lot of household name guitar greats and band members. Keith Richards and Mick Jagger stepped-up to insist that the Rolling Stones cover the expense of providing first class funeral for Sumlin (story). On February 24, the Apollo Theater in New York will host a tribute to Sumlin that is attracting plenty of six string masters, among them Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Derek Trucks, Doyle Bramhall and Guy Clark Jr.  They will be joined by Dr. John, Levon Helm Ivan Neville, with many more expected to be announced soon.
