Just months after the release of his latest record, Fried Grits and Greens, Louisiana bluesman Burton Gaar has been diagnosed 
with inoperable bone cancer. Ironically, he is at #1 on BB King's Bluesville’s Pick-To-Click (Sirius/XM Ch 70). He is currently #39 
on Air Play Direct Monthly Blues Chart, and #25 All-Time.

Gaar started his career in 1959 at the ripe old age of 16 playing bass for legendary bluesman Slim Harpo. He later
went on to play with Rockin' Sydney Semien (My Toot Toot), and R&B legend Percy Sledge (When a Man Loves A Woman).
He recorded his first solo record, Still Singing the Blues in 1995. One year later, while on tour in Europe, he recorded
One Hundred Pounds of Trouble. Blues Revue Magazine quoted, "This is one of the 10 most listened to records in our
offices." Charlie Musselwhite chose the song No from this record for his Grammy nominated, WC Handy winning CD,
Continental Drifter. He also chose this song to play for his appearance on Conan O'Brian. Musselwhite noted, "Every
tune is an A-side!" He followed with Mighty Long Road in 2000 and Home of the Blues in 2003. In a quote, Louisiana Blues 
Hall of Famer Larry Garner said "I'm a hard man to please, and I like every song on Home of the Blues." Other artists that 
have recorded Gaar’s tunes are Carl Weathersby and Shaun Murphy. Carl Weathersby said, “Burton Gaar has it all!”
After taking a break from recording for a few years, he released Fried Grits and Greens in early 2011. A duet with Shaun Murphy 
was in the pre-production stage but it is unclear at this time if it will be completed. According to Gaar's manager, TC Davis, 
a tribute album is in the planning stages. It would be an album of different artists performing Gaar's songs with proceeds 
going to offset medical costs.
