This is very sad and tragic news.  Strangely coincidental is that Living
Blues #150 just reported that drummer Kenny Kimbrough's house burned down a
few months ago destroying all of his father's memorabilia.  Now Junior's
juke is gone.

Anyone that has ever been to Junior's will never forget the experience.
