Revered guitarist, singer and songwriter Steve Ferguson (b. Nov. 21, 1948), a founding member of famed R&B rockers NRBQ, passed away Wednesday after a lengthy battle with cancer. He was 60.
Ferguson appeared on Mountain Stage in 1991 along with his band Brother Stephen & The Humanitarians (see below) and performed with late pianist and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame-er Johnnie Johnson, who Ferguson backed on his landmark release "Johnnie B. Bad." He returned to Mountain Stage in 1993 with Mark Horn.
