I really don't believe this. I just read the news from Bob Corritore that Sean Costello has died. Costello was a very young man, only 29 years old, and I just reviewed his CD a couple of weeks ago. I am in a state of shock at the moment, I really don't know what to say. Here is what Bob Corritore wrote in his email:

- RIP Sean Costello 4/16/79-4/15/08: This shocking and sad news just in from Steve Hecht of Piedmont Talent: Blues singer/guitarist Sean Costello was found today dead in his hotel room in Atlanta, Georgia. He would have been 29 tomorrow. Cause of death is not known at present but details will posted on the Piedmont Talent website as they are revealed. Sean had recently released his fourth CD, We Can Get Together on the Delta Groove Record Label, and was a featured guitarist on the acclaimed new Nappy Brown CD Long Time Coming on Blind Pig Records. A handsome young man with amazing guitar ability, a fine voice, and a strong sense of carrying forward the tradition of the blues, Sean was a rising star with a brilliant career in front of him. In a world where we sorrowfully watch so many elder statesman of the blues pass, the loss this youthful bright light is especially hard to take. Rest in peace, Sean.
I will keep looking for more information and will post it as soon as it come out. As Bob said, rest in peace Sean.
