I love Scrapper Blackwell.... the name says it all

Himself and a piano player called leroy carr were the first duo to successfully be a blues duo and in their time they made a shit load of money, drank it all away , Leroy Carr wrote many classics that were copied and recoreded and went on to become standards. Carr died an alcoholic and Blackwell ended up as a working as a Tarmac guy .he was found again in the 60s and recorded an album. he was stabbed in an alleyway and died .
