The Late, Great Floyd Taylor

I thought it was a mistake when I heard the dee jay announce a song by the late Floyd Taylor!!!  But sadly, it was not an error.  Floyd was so very talented and the world looked forward to many years of his wonderful music.  My heart goes out to his family. I don't know any details but the following story was on Black America Web on Feb. 21:

Floyd Taylor, the son of the late blues and soul legend Johnnie Taylor has died at the age of sixty-years-old, according to a family friend.
Taylor, a Blues singer, had recently been touring with other musical acts across the country. His next show was slated for March 15, 2014 in Merrillville, Indiana at the Town Blues Festival.
The Taylor family has not officially commented on his death.
