Rockie Charles RIP

Yet another New Orleans R and B artist has passed away - this time Rockie Charles, known as The President of Soul, who has died of cancer aged 67. Rockie may not have been one of the better known artists from the city, but I saw him at the Ponderosa Stomp twice and he was a fine performer. There's an excellent obituary of him on

It's only a few weeks now unti,a go to New Orleans so, sadly, this is yet another artist that I will not get to see - along with many others.
