The Killer Blues Headstone Project Reaches 20

(The Blues) The Killer Blues Headstone Project recently marked the grave of Aaron 'Pinetop' Sparks, finally identifying for future generations where the pioneer bluesman was laid in 1937.

That's taken the scheme's total to 20 but they have a list of dozens of music icons whose last resting places remain unknown. And project organiser Aaron Pritchard hopes fans of the genre will help fund their continued work.

Some ceremonies are followed by jam sessions and other celebrations but Pritchard stood alone in the St Louis graveyard, with the exception of a cemetery superintendent and a few members of the press, to pay respects after laying Sparks' headstone, made at a cost of around $300. more on this story
