It would not have been the same without him …

+1 RIP Jerry, deep respect.

Between them, they wrote my youth soundtrack. A sad day.

What a talent, RIP indeed :frowning: .

I DL’d “Hound Dog” today in tribute. The Big Mamma Thornton version, not the much inferior Elvis version.

BTW – that Thornton version, recorded in 1952, sounds better than many modern recordings, including – especially – my own

Yes, another great one is gone… :frowning:

R.I.P. Jerry.
