The Guitarist Magic Slim has died Thursday, February 21, at a Philadelphia hospital aged 75. He was playing Piano, but he turned to guitar after losing his right pinky finger at the age of 13.  Slim was in the hospital for treatment as he was suffering emphysema and heart problems. Slim is known for an encyclopedic mastery of the blues and he made his first record in 1966.
