R.I.P. BlowFly (Clarence Reid)

BlowFly has passed away unfortunately.

Not exactly a household name, but he is regularly cited in interviews as being a massive influence on alot of artists, and artists being massive fans of his.

Blowfly was a living legend. Alas, now he is another dead legend. I had trhe pleasure of seeing him perform at The Sugar Club a number of years ago.
Been a fan since hearing about him in 2000 or so.
