All About Blues Music‘s Today’s Memory
Lonesome Sundown’s birthday
Originally shared by All About Blues Music
Lonesome Sundown was the Blues name of guitarist Cornelius Green, who was born on December 12th 1938.
‘Lonesome’ got started playing with Clifton Chenier and went on to make some great Swamp Blues records with harp player Lazy Lester. With a fine, deep voice and a talent for a flashy guitar turnaround, Sundown never had a big hit record, despite writing some great songs.
