In Austin for SWRFA. At Threadgill’s this evening for the kick-off gathering. George Ensle told me that Keith Carper passed away last night. Multiple health problems I gathered. Man, another one gone. Keith was the bassist on our CD “Blast From The Past” and he played with many great musicians, notably Tish Hinojosa for years. His discography was extensive and prestigious. We were lucky he liked playing with us and to have him on the CD. Listen to his bass breaks on “Rocky Road Blues” and “Got To Be With You Tonight”. Way too many good people are leaving us.
