The Chicago Blues community has lost a very special person in Eddie Taylor Jr. 

Eddie Taylor Jr. was the son of Eddie Taylor, the musician perhaps most responsible for Chicago's style of Blues.  

Eddie Jr. was a great guitarist in the traditional Blues style, and a  humble person, a rare combination in today's music industry.  He was a quiet person, but when asked for advice about guitar playing, he was more than generous. 

Unfortunately, now that he's gone, the family is in need of help with memorial services and burial.  Time is very short, please share, and if you can, donate within the next 24 hours.
