People come from all over the world to experience the sights. sounds and people on Highway 61. Gentlemen, one man that knew all about Highway 61 was Mr. Hubert Sumlin, one of the greatest blues players of all time. Well, we recently lost Mr. Sumlin so we wanna send our love to his family. We also want to send a shout-out to our buddies The Rolling Stones who took care of all the expenses of Mr. Sumlin's home-goin'. That's a class act and the kind of respect that people all over the world have for blues and its people that come from Highway 61.
