Boston Blackie & Taildragger, Chicago Blues Festival
Bennie Houston (Boston Blackie) November 6, 1943 - July 11, 1993
James Yancey Jones (Tail Dragger) September 30th, 1940
About a month after these images were made I got a call from a friend in New Hampshire asking me if I had any good images from the show. I did I told him, some great ones. "Well keep them safe he told me, because Tail Dragger shot and Killed Boston Blackie over an argument about money someone didn't get paid on that gig at the blues fest" he said. I was in shock.
