Skip James died this morning after a very long and painful illness. One of his finest memories was going to Europe in 1967 and he made many friends there who continued to write to him.
Mrs James and I would like to thank all the people who were so kind to Skip during his lifetime. We'd especially like to thank the members of The Cream for recording one of his songs ('I'm So Glad') and making it possible for him to have an income for the final year of his life.
