T-Model Ford, the “bad man” of the blues rough and old, has passed

T Model T-Model Ford, real name James Lewis Carter Ford, left us to a ripe old age, but nobody in the world knows what exactly. In fact, in addition to his past biographical, which helped define the golden epic of a borderline musician, and over the years has mainly fueled his legend, his myth, it is certainly the news that even he has never known with certainty – as that is, all of us – how many years I’ve ever had. Indeed, it seems that the great James was recorded at the registry offices only several years after his birth, and that whoever did not know exactly how old he was. It is estimated, however, that he died between 89 and 94 years. He was in Mississippi, in a nursing home. Another singular aspect: Ford has become a bluesman in very old age, more or less when he was sixties. Here too, the legend exudes significant points: it seems that his fifth wife, leaving him, gave him a guitar and from there the old T, illiterate and desperate, began to sing his life, of course, made of blues, bad feelings and everything else.

He leaves behind a rich discography, produced by Fat Possum, one of the most interesting labels in the world, which now includes Black Keys and Iggy Pop.
