Taken from the Blowfly Facebook page

Clarence Reid, the genius known both by his given name and as Blowfly, the Master of Class, passed peacefully today, January 17th, in his hospice room.

His sister Virginia and I thank you for all the love you have shown this week. We also thank you for supporting Clarence's 50 + year music career - especially these last few years. We love you and will keep you informed on services and tribute performances in Clarence's honor.
Nothing But Love,
Tom Bowker

We are extremely sad to learn of his illness and subsequent passing this week.
Nearly all of the legends are gone including the nastiest mother fucker of all time.

The final Blowfly Album
"77 Rusty Trombones" will be released on Febuary 19th (CD & Digital) and March 18th (LP).

The album can be listened to here


Happy New Year
