The blues will never die: blues musicians Big George Brock and Ms. Clarine Wagner listening to David "Honeyboy" Edwards (1915-2011) in one of Mr. Edwards' last performances. I was touched by the reverence of these two great musicians for the music of their predecessor. Beauty compels us to honor it. By this, we preserve life even against death.
