Augusta Lee Collins started playing at a early age playing around with his uncle's guitar. While in school Augusta started playing the drums in his uncle's band and that took him to playing behind such legends Sun Ra, Bobby Hutcherson. Woody Shaw, Herbie Hancock, Maze just to name a few. Later he put down the drums as he said went back to his roots Guitar and blues. Augusta will take you down memory of his life and his love for music. I'm sad to report that Augusta was killed on Monday 8/31/15 he was hit by a car crossing the street. I had nothing but good times with him we never met in person but had plenty of conversation on the phone another legend gone. God bless him and his family. He was 69 years old.
