. . . would have been 100 years old today. The pianist who made the doomed, and now non-existent, session with Blind Willie McTell in Augusta GA in July 1936, was born on a farm outside Hampton GA on October 19, 1911.

His real name was William Lee Perryman; his parents were sharecroppers. His last album was released in 2010  -  The Lost Atlanta Tapes. There's an interesting local review of it here. Piano Red/Dr.Feelgood died on July 25, 1985 in Atlanta, aged 73.
