Sam Myers, 1936-2006

Sam Meyers will be missed.

Blues musician Sam Myers died yesterday in Dallas. He was 70. Myers had been diagnosed with cancer in February 2005. After working as Elmore James' drummer for over a decade, he became a fixture on the chitlin circuit. For the last twenty years, Myers had been vocalist and harmonica player for Anson Funderburgh & the Rockets. This 1997 recording showcases Myers' rich, playful voice.
