It's with extreme sadness that I tell you all of the death of my friend and musical colleague, Ernie Williams.

Ernie was a great blues singer and guitarist - an extraordinary showman and entertainer who gave his all with every show.  I learned a lot playing with Ernie. For that I will be forever in his debt.

Ernie, you will always be with me...
