Lonnie Mack, a guitarist and singer whose impassioned, fast-picking style on the early 1960s instrumentals - Memphis and Wham - became a model for the blues-rock lead-guitar style and a seminal influence on a long list of British and American artists, died on Thursday in Nashville. He was 74.

Mr. Mack was a country boy from southern Indiana who grew up on the Grand Ole Opry, rhythm and blues radio, and the gospel music he sang at his local church, influences that he blended as both a singer and guitarist.

Alligator Records announced his death but did not specify the cause.

 

I had the chance and pleasure to see him in concert ,,,,, he loved playing his "Gibson 1958 Flying V" great, just great !!!!!!

R.I.P. Lonnie
