Corey Osborn

I just read on the Downtown Memphis Blog that a BB King’s regular musician Corey Osborn died yesterday in a car accident. The story in the Commercial Appeal is pretty vague but does confirm this hard and sad truth.

Commercial Appeal Story

I’ve personally never intentionally gone to see Corey play yet have heard him perform a time or two. He and Kirk Smithhart would play together from time to time at random places. I shot a game of pool with him and  Kirk a while back at about 5am in an after hours bar. He laughed at the things I could name about Kirk because I used to see him play all the time about 11 years ago. He seemed like a pretty cool guy. I know the Memphis Music community will miss him.

Godspeed Corey
