The best article in the time I've been around and it's by chance which is gold.

You want to read about unique residents like this but if you did I guess they would not be so special given their number.

I guess you will have to make some people up or you will have peaked creatively.

Awesome story!

Great story! I guess I am not the oldest resident in SL after all.

Hamlet Au

So glad you liked it! Charles is actually not even the oldest Resident. But I'll be writing about that one soon too. :)

Awesome post! I've heard Charles before but never the story behind him! Thanks for sharing it!

I had not heard of Charles Bristol before, but really enjoyed reading about him, so thank you, Hamlet, for the great post and letting others know about him. I love old time Blues...my favorite music actually.. so really enjoyed listening to him play through the link you included to his MySpace page, and so nice to know one can go and hear him in SL.

I have a lot of admiration for him being in SL, and playing his music there at almost 88 years old...and for two years now!!..wow, quite amazing. He is really an inspiration as to how to go through life...keep following what has meaning for you...and never tell yourself you are too old to try something new.

I was wondering if Charles set the age record. I'm looking forward to seeing who does!

I'm the owner of Hotlanta Blues, the club where Mr. Bristol played (in the video). When I was first approached about him and Kamaboko doing a live show that evening I was stoked. They did a great extended set of old time blues and made the night very special for us at the club. You're welcome to come back anytime, Mr. Bristol. It is an honor to have you play for us.
