Pinetop Perkins

Just got word that Pinetop Perkins passed away. 

Born in 1913, he released his last album in 2010. 

That's not a typo.

Elton John, Billy Joel and Gregg Allman all credit him with showing them the way around the keyboard
and he influenced countless thousands of others. 

Here he is as a sideman with Muddy Waters.
