Juke Boy Bonner

The late Juke Boy Bonner, one-man trio, was a bluesman right up my alley. He only lived to be 46 years old, but he left us some excellent recordings. Here he is on Swiss TV

Here's Running Shoes

The first tune I ever heard by him was called Life is a Nightmare and it had chilling lyrics:
Life is a Nightmare
that's just the way it seems
so many ups and downs
valleys filled with empty dreams.

Life Gave me a Dirty Deal
Ghetto Poet
