Croaky-voiced blues singer-guitarist Lester "Big Daddy" Kinsey, who with his sons Kenneth, Donald and Ralph performed as "Big Daddy" Kinsey and His Fabulous Sons, died of prostate cancer on Tuesday, reports the Associated Press. In the early 1990s, the elder Kinsey released the album "I Am the Blues." Without their father, the Kinsey Boys formed a group that calls itself the Kinsey Report and which has toured with the Allman Brothers Band.
