RIP. Amazing musician and entertainer. I saw him 3 times at Wolf Trap over the years, and every show was great.

I almost missed this one. I didn't see it here, but on another site. They have a list of all the music related deaths from 2016. There are like 32 of them, then another page with a few dozen others, including related folk like managers and producers. The list is way too big. Pop and Rock Star Deaths in 2016 – RIP Buckwheat Zydeco

I waited to post to this thread until I had a chance to listen to the Buckwheat Zydeco CD I have in my digitized collection. Did that today.

I love Zydeco. I remember the first time I heard Clifton Chenier on one of those off-the-wall radio stations in the 70's. Man, I didn't know you could wail on accordion like that!

The Buckwheat Zydeco CD I have is good, but it just doesn't do that much for me, some very good, some kinda mediocre ( 1988 Taking It Home). I love the clip that was posted though. I bet he was crazy fantastic to see live.

Now that I'm in my 60's, I gotta say 68 is just way to young for this guy to go. Bon Ton Roulet!

Another from the session posted below:



And here he is, outside of the Zydeco mood, doing some Jimi Hendrix wah-wah on accordion:

Thanks for posting that Fats song. That put a big ol' smile on my face this morning. I'll have to listen to the other clip this afternoon. Can't get it up for a 13 min. version of Hey Joe on the squeeze box before my second cup o' joe, me.
