Goodbye, Slim: Legendary Blues Guitarist Magic Slim Dies, Age 75

Legendary Chicago blues guitarist Magic Slim - who followed in the footsteps of Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf - died on Thursday aged 75, reports Reuters. His manager Marty Salzman confirmed heavy smoker Magic had suffered from emphysema and heart problems and was forced by illness to cut short a tour with his band The Teardrops in January.

Slim, who gave up piano and took up guitar after losing a finger aged 13, grew up on a farm and made his first trip to the Windy City in 1955, starting out as a bass player. He cut his first record 11 years later and became a regular fixture on the Chicago blues scene, developing his own distinctive style of playing - a slide-style vibrato heavy sound. Credited on over 30 albums, Magic Slim was also known for his encyclopaedic mastery of blues. "There's probably not another bluesman who had quite the repertoire that Slim had," said Salzman.

Unfortunately, the Band's music didn't have much influence on the way future music would develop. But The Last Waltz, a concert film of the Band's 1976 farewell performance, remains an essential artwork. The film is a reminder that while they lasted, the Band (guitarist Robbie Robertson, drummer Levon Helm, keyboardists Garth Hudson and Richard Manuel, and bassist Rick Danko) was as good as any group in rock history.
