Ain't Nothin' but the Blues!

News about the Dicky Neely Blues Band and his buddies. Schedules as they develop, photos, old and new and maybe a few odd things here and there. I have recorded with several local artists; Jimmy Trout,Jesse Bishop,Woody Ray Lawson,Dennis Gilley,and others.

Corey Jackson Passes Away

Last week Corey Jackson died. Corey was a nice guy and he was a real guitar talent. He was only 25 years old.
It is always sad to see friends and loved ones die.
Musicians seem to die off at a faster rate than many others, if you like some of your local musicans let them know it. Give them encouragement because they help to enrich peoples' lives.
Travel well Corey.

Thanks, Dicky, for your kind words. Corey always said you were a writer's writer...Not sure what he meant, but I know he appreciated your writing a great deal. When he was about 15, he used to look for the newspaper on the island, when he'd find one, he'd say "look Mom, my friend, Dicky wrote this...". He and Rocky are settling in to their new digs, and as always, entertaining the masses.
