And I just saw this, and this happened a couple of months ago.…Chess Records founder Phil Chess made the transition at the right old age of 95.  Phil and his brother Leonard Chess started Chess records in 1950…They recorded Muddy Waters, Etta James, Howlin Wolf, Buddy Guy, Willie Dixon and many of the great Blues artists in the early 50’s.  The music was called race music and they made it popular all over the world.  Years ago, I did a documentary on the Chess Brothers, and that is an interesting story.  His brother Leonard made the transition in 1969… WHERE THEY AT WHERE THEY AT:
