Sad news learned this evening that one of our 1st Class of Hall of Fame Inductee's has passed on. Bill Mr. Stress Miller passed peacefully in his home. It is hard to begin to quantify the impact of this news. So many bluesman have come and gone. Each has touched the souls of their fans in their travels. Cleveland Blues was synonymous with Mr. Stress. Not only did he play the blues but lived the blues right next to the rest of us. He was a part of our lives and community. He challenged us to be more than we were. He berated us that we could never compare to the ones that he played with and deprecated himself in his song and banter.
