Son Bonds Was Shot and Killed 66 Years Ago

On this day in 1947, Son Bonds, a country blues guitarist, was accidentally shot on his porch by his short-sighted neighbor, who thought he was another man. Definitely, those days were very dangerous.

He was from Brownsville, Tennessee, and from the early 1930's until his death, recorded blues and also backed up Sleepy John Estes.

One of his famous songs is called "A Hard Pill To Swallow".
