- The AP reports: “Grammy-winning Blues musician David “Honey Boy” Edwards, believed to be the oldest surviving Delta bluesman and whose roots stretched back to blues legend Robert Johnson, died early Monday in his Chicago home, his manager said. He was 96.” Read Bill Friskicks-Warren’s obituary in the New York Times.Watch a video of him performing “Gamblin’ Man” below.

- Sunday night’s VMAs on MTV scored the show’s highest ratings ever. So basically we’re all responsible and enablers. What did Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon think of the show? He did not like it.
