    I'm tone-deaf and can't carry a tune, but I've loved liatening to this guy for many years. This tweet is 8 minutes long, half a lively blues song, half a David Letterman interview. It may not get much traction, but I wanted to post it.

    He had a great career, I think late in his career he got connected with a young female singer who admired his work and they did some duets.

    Big fan of his and that style. The wife and I were fortunate enough to see him perform a few years back on one of his last tours. You knew he was nearing the end but the stage presence was still evident and was clearly touched by the appreciation from an adoring audience. TOK, I think you're referring to Lady Gaga who performed with him into his 90s....old school, special voice, special performer. RIP Tony
