Willie Murphy

When someone says, "Minnesota musician," many people will think, "Prince". The first name that comes to my mind is Willie Murphy. I can't claim that I knew him personally but I had spoken with him from time to time over the years. Mostly, I heard him play his music. It moved me and I loved it.

Sadly, Willie died of complications from pneumonia last Sunday morning at the age of 75. The tie-dyed flags will be flying at half-staff over the West Bank.

Tributes and memorials will surely be announced in the near future. For now I refer you to Chris Riemenschneider's Star Tribune article: 'Heart and soul of Minneapolis music scene' Willie Murphy dies at 75
