Preston Hubbard, who played bass with the Fabulous Thunderbirds during their greatest period of fame, has died. He was 63. The cause of death is not known to the public at this time. American Blues Scene says that he was found dead in his home on Wednesday.
Unfortunately, Hubbard was also a longtime drug user. The first-person bio on his website goes into great detail about his addictions, and he even spent two years in jail in Texas after his fourth bust.
