Yes indeed. Jonesboro didn't get much in the way of live music while I was trapped there, but Billy Lee came to town once and played solo blues at a sandwich deli. Great show. Used to also see him at the Beale St. Fest, Green Bay, other places. RIP Billy Lee, thanks for the music.

When I worked at Sun Studio giving tours, depending on the tourists, we'd tell this story about BLR almost burning down the studio from next door way back when, he was living in the space upstairs and got into a fight with his wife or something. Can anyone remember this tale? I loved this guy. A real deal rock'n'roll dude. R.I.P.
