Preston Hubbard

(The Blues) Preston Hubbard has died aged 63. The former Fabulous Thunderbirds and Room Full Of Blues bassist was found dead at his home in St Louis, Missouri this week.

He was well-known in the blues community for his other work with Bonnie Raitt, The Vaughan Brothers, Duke Robillard, Etta James, Professor Longhair and The Blues Brothers.

Hubbard suffered a long battle with drug and alcohol addiction in the years since his exit from The Fabulous Thunderbirds in 1995, though he later adopted a cleaner lifestyle.

Guitarist Joanne Shaw Taylor led tributes to the late blues bassist, describing him as "A true hero of mine, supporter and friend." Read more here.
