A Virtual Cemetery created by Neal Underwood

Chicago blues legends at rest in Chicagoland

Legendary Chicago blues musicians who are at rest in or near the Chicagoland area or within about a half-day drive. That would be approximately Milwaukee to the north, Champaign-Urbana to the south, Mississipi River border to the west (Peoria, Rockford, Moline, etc.) and Indianapolis to the east. This project is a work in progress and will be for a long time. Information has been acquired from a variety of far-flung sources which may or may not be correct. Additions and corrections enthusiastically welcomed.
