Legendary Blues Musician Pinetop Perkins Laid to Rest

A Memorial service was held Monday evening for Joe Willie “Pinetop” Perkins, a music legend who passed away last week at the age of 97, at the Cook Walden Funeral Home in Austin. Sitting on a small table next to a portrait of Pinetop is a meal from McDonalds, one of his favorite meals that includes a cheeseburger, fries and apple pie. Blues artists gathered at Antones later that night for a musical tribute.
