On a sad note, the blues world may soon be mourning legendary Blues harmonica player, Junior Wells. Wells slipped into a coma Tuesday in a Chicago hospital after suffering a heart attack last Friday. Several weeks ago, Wells, 62, underwent treatment for lymphoma and was checked back into the hospital. While there, he started suffering from fainting spells. Valerie Thorson, a spokeswoman for Telarc International, Wells' label, said doctors discovered there was no brain activity and decided to remove Wells from life support. His manager, Marty Salzman, said doctors reported that Wells is breathing on his own, but there's no good prognosis. They don't think he'll recover from the coma. Only time will tell.
