posted by Jeanne Sparrow - 

Chicago is mourning the loss of another music great... The Sun Times reported this morning that Blues legend Eddy “The Chief” Clearwater has passed away from heart failure. 

The Chief was a 2016 Blues Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy nominee… and he was still working right up until the end of his life, recently recording songs for a new release.  He had also been scheduled to perform at Buddy Guy’s next weekend.  The Chief was 83.

Today, the blues community mourns the loss of Eddy “The Chief” Clearwater, a true Chicago Blues legend. Rest peacefully, Eddy. You will be so deeply missed by so many. - Team BG
