Blues musicians and fans are saddened by the passing of Doyle Bramhall Sr. He passed at the age of 62 at his home from, at this time undetermined causes. It was a shock too many, in fact he was scheduled to perform next week on the 26th at the Granada Theater. We will all, musicians and fans alike miss him dearly.
Doyle has had a career in music that many struggling musicians only dream of. He has had an impact on the lives of several musicians who have had the chance to meet him. This man has played with some of the greats and in the process was able to become one of the greats.
Several blues musicians had performed a special musical tribute to Doyle last Sunday. His family and closest friends will be attending his services that will be held in his home state of Texas. His family has decided to keep his services open, welcoming all, friends, fellow musicians and fans alike.
I can only imagine that an open service for all would have fit into Doyle’s personality that he was so well known for. A man made of genuine kindness. Doyle Bramhall was a legend and star, a star has now fallen. We will all miss him, may our best wishes remain with his family.
Services will be held in Austin Texas at the Weed-Corley-Fish funeral home. The address is 3125 N. Lamar Blvd. Services will be held at 2:30 pm on November 21st, according to information provided by the Star Telegram.
