How Recording Studios Work Legendary recording artist Elvis Presley recorded in Memphis' Sun Studios. Phantom City Studio Orlando Florida recording studios. In 1953, a skinny 18-year-old with slicked-back hair walked into Memphis Recording Service. He wanted to make a personal recording and was looking for owner Sam Phillips. Since Phillips wasn't in, the teen talked to secretary Marion Kiesker. When she asked what style of music he played, he responded, "I don't sound like nobody." Although few people ever heard that first $4 recording, Elvis Presley turned his personal style into worldwide fame with the help of Sam Phillips and that recording studio, which became the legendary Sun Studio. The studio was also home to Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis and B.B. King [source: Rockabilly Hall of Fame]. Sun Studio may be what comes to mind when you think of recording studios, or the Beatles' Abbey Road in London -- or maybe even Chess Records in Chicago where artists such as Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, ...

myRockworld concert review Johnny Winter live in munich at the Muffathall 9.4.2013 John Dawson Winter III is born in Beaumont, Texas in 1944 and he is one of the biggest guitarheroes alltime . Constantly shifting between simple country blues in the vein of Robert Johnson, to all-out electric slide guitar blues-rock, – Johnny has always been one of the most respected singers and guitar players in rock and the clear link between British blues-rock and American Southern rock. Together with his fine band, guitarplayer and Johnnys Manager Paul Nelson ( great solo cd LOOK) , bassplayer Scott Spray and the new drummer Tommy Curiale they started their Tour in Germany at the full Muffathall in munich with great Rock´n´Roll tunes from Chuck Berry and the Rolling Stones. After some strong Blues standards from the last cd Roots they played the alltime classics like Bob Dylans Highway 61 and Got My Mojo Workin' from Johnnys idol Muddy Waters. Johnny produced 4 best selling records with Muddy Waters in the 70s. At ...
Today's Rant: The Beatles, The question that no panel of talking heads are asking is why? Up to that point in pop music history English acts had very little, if any success, in America. At the same time, American acts such as R&B legends as Robert Johnson, Howlin Wolf, and Muddy Waters were being worshipped by the likes of Lennon, McCartney, Jagger and Clapton. So why would these lads from Liverpool take the world by storm and particularly American teenagers like me? The short answer is "Rockabilly" music. Almost all early rockers were from the Southern United States, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison were from Texas, so other than the acts out of Philly and the East Coast, the founders of early Rock n roll such as Elvis, Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis were very much from the south, and most from the deep south. You can add Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash to that list. The "hillbilly" influence in early rock was very hard to listen to, if you were from Chicago or Detroit, it just sounded stupid an ...
Cadillac Records is a 2008 musical biopic written and directed by Darnell Martin. The film explores the musical era from the early 1940s to the late 1960s, chronicling the life of the influential Chicago-based record-company executive Leonard Chess, and the musicians who recorded for Chess Records. The film stars Adrien Brody as Leonard Chess, Cedric the Entertainer as Willie Dixon, Mos Def as Chuck Berry, Columbus Short as Little Walter, Jeffrey Wright as Muddy Waters, Eamonn Walker as Howlin' Wolf, and Beyoncé Knowles as Etta James. The film was released in North America on December 5, 2008 by TriStar Pictures.
Mos Def and Jeffrey Wright are excellent as Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters respectively
Artist Biography by Cub Koda No two ways about it, the most influential slide guitarist of the postwar period was Elmore James, hands down. Although his early demise from heart failure kept him from enjoying the fruits of the '60s blues revival as his contemporaries Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf did, James left a wide influential trail behind him. And that influence continues to the present time -- in approach, attitude and tone -- in just about every guitar player who puts a slide on his finger and wails the blues. As a guitarist, he wrote the book, his slide style influencing the likes of Hound Dog Taylor, Joe Carter, his cousin Homesick James and J.B. Hutto, while his seldom-heard single-string work had an equally profound effect on B.B. King and Chuck Berry. His signature lick -- an electric updating of Robert Johnson's "I Believe I'll Dust My Broom" and one that Elmore recorded in infinite variations from day one to his last session -- is so much a part of the essential blues fabric of guitar licks t ...

Today was the birthday of Stephen "Stevie" Ray Vaughan (October 3, 1954 – August 27, 1990), who was an American guitarist, singer, songwriter and record producer. Often referred to by his initials SRV, Vaughan is best known as a founding member and leader of the Texas rock & blues band Double Trouble. With drummer Chris Layton and bassist Tommy Shannon, they ignited the blues revival of the 1980s. With a career spanning seven years, Vaughan and Double Trouble consistently sold out concerts while their albums frequently went gold. Vaughan's music took root in blues, rock, and jazz. He was influenced by the work of artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Albert King, B.B. King, Freddie King, Albert Collins, Johnny "Guitar" Watson, Buddy Guy, Howlin' Wolf, Chuck Berry, and Muddy Waters. Vaughan was born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Stevie started playing guitar at the age of seven and soon after formed several bands that occasionally performed in local nightclubs. At age 17, he dropped out of high school and moved t ...

In America itself there was no less experimentation during 1966 and 1967. Already in San Francisco thanks to the first real rock promoter Bill Graham, groups like the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Aiplane, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Big Brother and the Holding Company, Country Joe and The Fish, Sly and the Family Stone, the Steve Miller Band, Santana, It's A Beautiful Day, Moby Grape, Creedence Clearwater Revival and others were rocking the Fillmore Auditorium. In New York groups like Simon and Garfunkel, the Lovin' Spoonful, Vanilla Fudge, the Velvet Underground and others were also doing stuff like nobody's business. In Chicago there was the Paul Butterfield Blues band with their 3 excellent guitarists Mike Bloomfield, Paul Butterfield and Elvin Bishop as well as blues greats like Buddy Guy, Chuck Berry, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Freddie King, Albert King, B.B. King and Junior Wells as as the great soul group the Impressions led by the great Curtis Mayfield.
Johnnie Johnson INFO: He was born Johnnie Clyde Johnson[2] in Fairmont, West Virginia[1] and began playing piano in 1928. He joined the United States Marine Corps during World War II where he was a member of Bobby Troup's all serviceman jazz orchestra, The Barracudas. After his return, he moved to Detroit, Illinois and then Chicago, where he sat in with many notable artists, including Muddy Waters and Little Walter. He moved to St. Louis, Missouri in 1952 and immediately put together a jazz and blues group, The Sir John Trio with drummer Ebby Hardy and saxophonist, Alvin Bennett. The three scored a regular gig at the Cosmopolitan Club in East St. Louis. On New Year's Eve 1952, Alvin Bennett had a stroke and could not perform. Johnson, searching for a last minute replacement, called a young man named Chuck Berry, the only musician Johnson knew who because of his inexperience, would likely not be playing on New Year's Eve. Although then a limited guitarist, Chuck Berry added vocals and showmanship to the gr ...
On This Day in Rock Histore! The Godfather of the Blues and creator of the Chicago Sound was born...William James "Willie" Dixon b. 1915 – d. January 29, 1992 One of THE key figures in the birth of Rock and Roll! writer of over 500 songs! performed by greats such as. Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Bo Diddley, Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson, Koko Taylor, Little Milton, Jimmy Witherspoon, Lowell Fulson, Memphis Slim, Otis Rush, Jimmy Rogers, Buddy Guy and more. Played Bass on all of Chuck Berry's early recordings including Maybelline! His mother, Daisy, was a great poet who often rhymed the things she said, which was a habit that Dixon soon adopted. The family of seven children lived behind the small restaurant that Daisy ran, which was next door to Curley’s Barrelhouse. Listening from the street, Dixon, then about eight years old, heard bluesmen Little Brother Montgomery and Charley Patton perform there, along with a variety of ragtime and Dixieland piano players. He became an admirer of the band t . ...
"Studying hard and hoping to pass." Chuck Berry is 86 and still playing. He is the true king of rock n roll. "my uncle took the message and he wrote it on the wall". A big fan of Muddy Waters, Berry eschewed the blues and considered a career as a decorator, before starting to write about the every day role of young Americans, and they danced to it. Chuck charted a bunch of tunes but only scored one number 1 hit. "My Ding-a-ling" A novelty tune performed by Doug Clark and The Hot Nuts, a black band that was very popular on the Frat party circuit. "Tell the folks back home this is the promised land calling and the poor boy's on the line." Chuck married in 1947 and still is with the same woman-65 years down the road. The road he traveled alone with a semi solid body Gibson old enough to have a brown case and hot pink Mexican Mink insides. He would arrive plug in and do his gig with a pickup band. (all players knew the tunes and so long as you could play in eb it was a cake walk.) I just started to write ...
I love 50s music! Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, and Carl Perkins is my preferred Elvis! Also like Muddy Waters!
Greatest music themed movies of all time: 1. The Commitments (No contest, better than the next four) 2. Still Crazy (A low-budget English movie about an eighties rock band trying to recapture some of their old magic. If you have not seen it, rent it) 3.Cadillac Records (A personal favorite. The story of Chess Records and the great artists like Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Little Walter, Howlin Wolf, and Etta James. Great movie) 4. The Temptations (I know. Technically not a movie. Made for tv, but nevertheless great) 5. The Buddy Holly Story (It would have been hard to screw up a movie about one of this greatest rock and rollers) Let me know if you know of any I may have overlooked. Please - No Broadway shows. They mostly suck.
I'm discovering artists like Little Walter and Chuck Berry, and of course Muddy Waters. Shame on me for knowing them before
First of four parts chronicling the incredible story of Chess Records. Home of Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, Little Walter, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley and...
Chess Records in Chicago was built on the music of African American blues artists (Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Little Walter, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Koko Taylor, Etta James, too many others to name here). Leonard Chess purchased the master of 'Susie-Q' assuming that Dale Hawkins was black. I have read several references quoting him saying to Dale when they first met, "You're white". To which Dale responded, "I know". If it's not a true story, it should be. Great song, and a fine artist who had more going for him than just one tune. Also one of James Burton's earliest guitar solos on record.
On this date in History: May 10, 2013. 1863; "Stonewall" Jackson, the South's greatest combat general, dies of his "friendly fire" wounds suffered in the Battle of Chancellorsville, the South's greatest victory. Afterwards, Robert E. Lee said he would give up his right arm to have Jackson back. This was pivotal in the South's defeat at Gettysburg in early July. 1869; The Golden Spike is driven into the track at Promontory Point, Utah, completing the Trans-Continental Railroad uniting the East and West and thus completing the first phase of Manifest Destiny. This, along with the Homestead Act, are two of the greatest forgotten acts passed under Abraham Lincoln's Administration. 1933; The Nazis stage a massive book burning in Germany; 1963; an unkempt looking group, compared to the Beatles, record their first record, a copy of Chuck Berry's "Come On" with Willie Dixon's "I Want To Be Loved" on the flip side. Their name is taken from a Muddy Waters song, THE Rolling Stones. 50 Years ago today, Baby. W ...

Born on May 1, 1930, blues artist, Little Walter. First harmonica player to amplify his harmonica, giving it a distorted echoing sound. He died on February 15th 1968. In 1942, the American War Production Board commandeers all facilities for the production of jukeboxes, turning them over to the manufacture of war materials. In 1955, on tour with Hank Snow's All Star Jamboree, Elvis Presley played three shows at the Municipal Auditorium in New Orleans, Louisiana. Sun Records had just released Elvis' fourth single, "Baby, Let’s Play House." In 1955, Leonard Chess signs Chuck Berry to a recording contract after he came highly recommended by Muddy Waters. In 1962, the Beatles started a month long residency at The Star Club, in Hamburg, Germany. Also in 1962, Britain's first Cinebox, a device that showed 16mm color film of musicians performing their hits on a 21 inch screen, is installed in London, England. As you might expect, the device flashed paid advertising messages whenever the machine was idle. In 196 ...

VIII.  Symbiosis   Jimi Hendrix: Known for his amazing guitar style and boisterous antics on stage, Jimi Hendrix was to become the focal point of Woodstock and arguably, the best electric guitar player the world has ever heard.  Born into poverty, Jimi did not have an easy life growing up. His parents divorced when he was young and his mother died when he was in his teens. This all led him to search for an outlet to his pains. At about the age of fourteen, Hendrix was able to pick up a one-string acoustic guitar, which inspired him to play like Muddy Waters and Lightnin’ Hopkins. His father eventually bought him an electric guitar and he learned to play by ear from listening and practicing endless hours to the likes of Chuck Berry.  After a short stint in the military, he was discharged for being an incompetent soldier because all he wanted to do was play his guitar. Upon leaving the Army, he moved to Nashville where he attempted to secure a band that could keep up with his playing style. He was abl ...

In the early 1950s, Keith Richards and *** Jagger were childhood friends and classmates at Wentworth Primary School in Dartford, Kent until their families moved apart.[6] In 1960, when Richards, on his way to class at Sidcup Art College, and Jagger, on his way to class at London School of Economics, met at Dartford train station, the Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters records Jagger carried revealed a mutual interest, leading to the re-establishment of their friendship and the formation of a band with *** Taylor (later of Pretty Things).[7][8] Richards, Taylor, and Jagger found Brian Jones as he sat in playing slide guitar with Alexis Korner's seminal London R&B band, Blues Incorporated, at the Ealing Jazz Club.

Eventually, just the way I discovered Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Willie Dixon, through the Rolling Stones, I did the same with anyone The Who were covering. That led me to Eddie in late 1967. Hunting down his albums in New York back then was almost impossible.
