RIP - Skip Pitts


Recommended Posts

Long-time Memphis musical mainstay Charles "Skip" Pitts passed away the other day at age 65, due to cancer. He was Isaac Hayes' guitarist for years - that was Skip on the wah-wah pedal on the "Theme From Shaft", and did tons of sessions for Stax/Volt (his guitar on The Isley Brothers' "It's Your Thing.") Most recently the guitarist for The Bo-Keys - both of their recent CDs are worth picking up. Saw them live at three Ponderosa Stomps in New Orleans (2008-2010). RIP
