2016: The year of musical death

10. Phil Chess. Phil and his brother founded Chess Records. Among the legends recording on Chess were Chuck Berry, Willie Dixon and Muddy Waters. He died in October at age 95.

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore.

I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
