  • RIP James Peterson, November 4, 1937 - December 11, 2010 This sad news just in from Selby Minner. Tampa based, Alabama born singer/guitarist James Peterson died Saturday of a heart attack. He was 73. James was a stirring performer with an amazing voice, a powerful guitar style, as well as being a clever songwriter. James has numerous CDs to his credit, on labels such as Waldoxy/Malaco, Ichiban, Perception, and Hown Dog. James is also the father of the gifted Lucky Peterson.
