He was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 1996.

I saw him at the 100 club in May 2008, he was 93! man what an amazing experience, i met him after the show and it was like talking to your Grandad, just a normal bloke who happens to know all these influences and plays the blues! got my ticket and CD signed! gotta love him in Dewy Cox!
