Thanks for the heads up on totally missing the irony.You totally missed the irony of a Blues Guitar player's demise by amplifier, certainly not in the league of being shot by a jealous husband or stabbed by a woman........
Perhaps if his name was “Lucky” or if the narrative had mentioned that he had survived many gun shot wounds delivered by jealous husbands or boyfriends only to be done in by a notoriously heavy amp following a fall on some stairs I might have picked up on it.
I must have been thrown off the scent by the details of the tib/fib fractures followed up by the technical “passing of a blood clot” (likely a pulmonary embolism; not uncommon following lower extremity fractures or possible compartment syndrome with a complication ensuing).
So thanks for the heads up on the irony lesson. The tacit inferences of jealousy and the obvious association of that with blues guitarists carrying heavy amps up stairs was definitely lost on me! I’ll try to make such tacit inferences in the future.
