Blues pioneer EMERY 'DETROIT JUNIOR' WILLIAMS JR died of heart failure. He was 73.
The piano star passed away on Tuesday (09AUG05) at his home in Chicago, Illinois, according to his close friend BRUCE IGLAUER, president of Alligator Records.
During a 50 year career in music, Williams was famed for his wild, humorous persona, and despite having lost a leg to diabetes, he continued performing at blues clubs well into his old age.
Iglauer says, "He was a one-man blues party. He had a smile and a good word for everybody."
The rapper teams up with Apple Music on his latest project.
The NBC series ended a decade ago, but Will, Grace, Karen and Jack haven't changed a bit.
Now THAT'S an engagement ring. Good job, Aaron Lohr!
The album is Williams’ first release since 2013’s ‘Swings Both Ways’.
There's already an Oscars buzz surrounding this movie.
