Death: Apr. 22, 1990

"Little Joe" Blue, a native of Vicksburg, Mississippi, moved to Tallulah, Louisiana as a child. It was here that he developed a love of music and learned to play guitar. After serving in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, he settled in Detroit, Michigan where he briefly worked with a band known as the "Midnighters." He moved to Los Angeles, California in the mid 1960's and recorded for the Checker Record label. He spent the 1960's and 1970's touring the U.S., briefly working with the James Brown Revue in 1975. In 1986, he performed at the International Jazz Festival in Barcelona, Spain. He continued performing up until his death from cancer at the age of 55. (bio by: Midnight Believer)
