'Skip Pitts' - Loaded Pictures

Postby Charles » Tue Dec 04, 2012 5:39 pm

Here's a really nice animated short bio about the Memphis, Tennessee all-star soul ensemble The Bo-Keys. The lead guitarist, Charles "Skip" Pitts narrates a colorful interview which the film is based upon.

Sadly, Skip Pitts passed away earlier this year and Memphis lost one of its great musical legends. But we have his voice and his music and animators at Loaded Pictures in Seattle to keep his legacy alive.

The track is 'Sundown on Beale'. Find out more about the Bo-Keys by visiting their website.
