Thanks to fellow Downtown blogger Sig for passing on this piece of sad information: Corey Osborn, who played regularly in B.B. King’s and other Downtown clubs, was killed in a one-person wreck on Highway 385. He was only 23 years old… I remember not long after I moved Downtown, he was being billed as the 18-year-old prodigy who was a good enough guitar player to play in B.B.’s club.
Downtown is poorer because of his loss. Thoughts and prayers to Corey’s family.
