Blues legend Milton Campbell dies

Mississippi bluesman Little Milton Campbell died in a Memphis hospital from complications of a stroke.

His publicist Carrie Newton confirmed the 71-year-old musician died Thursday morning. No other details were released.

Campbell suffered a stroke on July 27th.

The Inverness native had been scheduled to perform August 11th at Clarksdale's Ground Zero Blues Club for the blues documentary "Native Sons," but that performance was canceled.

Campbell's last appearance in Jackson was at The Allman Brothers Band concert in May.

His hit record "We're Gonna Make It" and his 1978 vintage black jacket were on display in Clarksdale last year as part of a "Sweet Home Chicago" exhibit at the Delta Blues Museum.

Funeral services are pending.

Campbell was survived by his wife, Patricia, and several children.
