In memoriam Franck Pelaez Wilson

 

It was a great shock when we heard that our friend, Franck Pelaez Wilson,had passed away on November 9th in his house in Torreperogil, Andalucia, Spain.

Franck was a unique guy who lived the blues and acted like some sort of bluespreacher in his home town.

He went through great efforts to book us for the 2007 edition of the Torreperogil Blues and Rock Festival held on July the 7th.

While there, Franck considered us his friends from the very beginning.

We will never forget Francks hospitality.

At the end of great Paella meal in his house where the wine was pouring down he gave each of us a key to his house in case we were around and needed a place to stay.

We all hope Franck will meet his true heroes Bob “the Bear” Hite and Alan “Blind Owl” Wilson formerly of Canned Heat, his all time favourite band.

Franck will be sadly missed.
