Blues-Guitar Legend Johnny Winter Passes Published: July 18, 2014 Johnny Winter passesJohnny Winter, among the elite guitarists in the blues and blues-rock idioms, died July 16 in Zurich, Switzerland, two days after he performed at a festival in Austria. He was 70, and at press time, no cause of death had been given. Winter grew up in Beaumont, Texas. His parents, John II and Edwina, encouraged him and his younger brother, Edgar, to pursue music. Both born with albinism, they found it challenging to fit in, socially, so they took to instruments – Johnny to the ukulele, Edgar to piano and saxophone. They began performing at an early age and, when Johnny was 10, appeared together on a children’s TV show in Houston, playing and singing Everly Brothers songs. Struck by the music of Muddy Waters, B.B. King, and Bobby Bland, Winter soon gravitated to blues guitar. When he was 15, his band, Johnny and the Jammers, released its first recording, called “School Day Blues,” on a local Houston label. While pl ...
As much as I like George Thorogood's Bad to the Bone, he totally steals the music from blues legend Muddy Waters' Hoochie *** Man
Johnny Dawson Winter III has passed away, according to several sources close to the blues man. He was 70. Details surrounding his death have not come forth, but will be added as they emerge. Winter and his brother, Edgar were raised in a musical family, with his roots firmly planted in the Mississippi delta — his father was the mayor of Leland, Mississippi, and Winter was recently honored with a Blues Trail Marker. From before his teens, Winter was playing and recording, even sitting in with the biggest blues legends of the day, including Muddy Waters and a comically reluctant BB King. In 1968, he released his first album, The Progressive Blues Experiment (featuring Willie Dixon on Bass), and after a now-famous performance at The Fillmore East, he was signed to Columbia Records with the largest advance ever made to an artist. After his mammoth deal, Johnny immediately laid out the blueprint for his fresh take on classic blues, according to his official biography, which was a prime combination for the le ...
Rest In Peace Johnny Winter Blues legend Johnny Winter dies at 70 in Zurich July 17, 2014, 7:36 AM EST By JOHN HEILPRIN , Associated Press GENEVA (AP) -- Texas blues icon Johnny Winter, who rose to fame in the late 1960s and '70s for his energetic performances and musical collaborations including with childhood hero Muddy Waters, has died. He was 70. His representative, Carla Parisi, confirmed Thursday that Winter died in a hotel room in Zurich a day earlier. The statement said his wife, family and bandmates were all saddened by the loss of one of the world's finest guitarists. He had been on an extensive tour this year that brought him to Europe. His last performance came Saturday at the Lovely Days Festival in Wiesen, Austria. Winter was one of the most popular live acts of the early 1970s, when his signature fast blues guitar solos attracted a wide following. His career received a big boost early on when Rolling Stone magazine singled him out as one of the best blues guitarists on the Texas scene. This ...
Today's is Muddy Waters' 1977 album "Hard Again" - featuring the late Johnny Winter - at 3pm on
Listening to Muddy Waters live with Johnny Winter in Strathmere.
His work on the 3 (I believe) records with Muddy Waters are very much a part of the soundtrack of my life. RIP Johnny Winter Much respect!!!
The last time I saw Johnny Winter was in Austin , 1981. He and Muddy Waters were touring. They were both awesome, but also so frail. His guitar kept him alive all those years.
Much love to Johnny Winter he gave us Muddy Waters sessions with Mannish Boy , 30min. Mountain Jam with Allman Bros. , Rock&Roll HoochieKoo
He'll be remembered for producing Muddy Waters' career high Blue Sky sessions as much as his own slide work
Here are my favorite shots of Johnny Winter... I loved when he recorded with Muddy Waters...Pinetop Perkins and James Cotton. ..in Hard Again. I was about 14 or 15 years old when I found that album...and it had just been made. His beautiful energy was all over that album...just shouting everywhere!! Lol.. He was truly born to play everywhere all of the time. He once broke the curfue at Lone Star Cafe. One more song he was told. So? He played about 15 minutes and asked another guitar player to take his guitar...while he was playing.as if the song never stopped. Then Johnny walked off stage while the band kept playing...and he went to the bathroom...and then he came back and slipped right into the guitar while the other guys was playing...and voila...he played a long time!! Maybe another half hour?? He was a total crowd pleaser... Guitar Stamina. That is always impressive to me. Infact it is down right sexy...when musicians just keep pouring out... and I am sure he will be pouring his spirit and light is .. ...
RIP, Johnny - you will always be "Still Alive And Well" in our hearts. In 1968 at the Vulcan Gas Company in Austin, Texas member of a local Austin band returned from a brief tour out west, he was raving about Johnny Winter, a "whiter than pale" blues player to the club manager. The manager, Houston White, decided to take a chance on Winter and hired him to open for Muddy Waters who was due to play the club. Both bands were set to play two sets and the club was practically empty when Johnny Winter took the stage but the Muddy heard him loud and clear. When Muddy took the stage to a packed house he played like the very hounds of *** were on his trail as he had no intention to be up-staged by some "white punk". When it was Winters turn again, Muddy's entire band was sitting near the front of the stage making sure they were seeing what they had been hearing.

Sad to hear Johnny Winter has died. Did some great stuff esp. with the late Muddy Waters
Really sad to hear of Johnny Winter's passing. One of the very first recordings I ever owned was Muddy Waters' "Hard Again" in which Johnny help produce and play on. As a young man, I worn that album out trying to get some of those parts down! He was one of the greatest who ever lived. Rest in Peace Johnny.
In my opinion, Johnny Winter was the greatest blues player in the post BB and Albert King/ Muddy Waters era, hands down. RIP to a REAL legend
Johnny Winters' dead at 70, a blues legend will now join Muddy Waters and others in that blues heaven in the sky.
I wonder how many rock and blues musicians have died in hotel rooms?
RIP Johnny Winter. He's not as well known as Clapton or Hendrix, but every bit as important. A great singer and guitar player. He was part of the generation that would play songs by their idols and encourage people to check them out. Muddy Waters, BB King were a few that benefitted from the exposure. They were able to receive national attention as a result, and not have to play small clubs on the Chitlin Circuit anymore
Never forget the work did with Muddy Waters
Amazingly talented..he was great with Muddy Waters..
tbh the Guardian obit gets it more or less exactly right in terms of importance
I know you're jammy with Muddy Waters again right now...thank you for the achingly beautiful music!!!amps cranked in heaven!
i learned about through a Muddy Waters album, when Winter was backing him. What a guitar player
Rest in peace Johnny Winter. On top of a stellar career playing blues and rock and roll, he was instrumental in resurrecting the career of Muddy Waters when he produced the brilliant "Hard Again" record in 1977. "Mannish Boy" and "I Want to Be Loved" off that record are some of the best Chicago Blues ever recorded, IMHO.
Just heard the news that Johnny Winter has died... Loved his work w/Muddy Waters,Hard Again is essential listening!.
RIP Johnny Winters. We celebrate the man with his Muddy Waters collaboration. ♫ I'm Ready – Muddy Waters
here's another addition to Johnny Winter and I.2 things..while i was living in NYC i played him some of the "in heat of the night" record when i finished it and he really liked it especially "heartbreaker" and encouraged me to keep bending steel and to do more producing like he had done with Muddy Waters being a guitar player/producer. such a super nice guy.the other thing was right before this photo was taken the drink he was holding was in his other hand... the cigarette was in his right hand still and was burning my arm. i said hey Johnny what are you doing!!!.and in that great voice he had started laughing and said sorry man!!!..we both started laughing!..which explains our expression!!!...i know what im gonna be listening to before i hit the stage tonight!.RIP my friend

When "God said Abraham, kill me a son!", surely he didn't mean Johnny Winter! Thanks for Hwy 61 & Parchman Farm & Second Winter & Third Degree & "Hard Again", the best album EVER recorded by Muddy Waters. "And they named the baby Rock & Roll"
.not sure the waters were even that muddy to begin with, Alex :/
RIP who confounded the norm producing Muddy Waters comeback sides arguably better than the originals himself
To be honest I'm not sure Hallett has done anything to un-muddy the waters. People will take what they need from it for their own purposes.
Just heard about Johnny Winter. We did a show with him last year outside of Ottawa. I just read the other day that he has a record coming out with all kinds of guests. Glad to hear he was working till the end. These are the guys who paved the way for all of us. He would say the same of Muddy Waters etc. Will have to listen to Hard Again at some point today. RIP Johnny Winter
Yo back in the day every single member of my crew knew "Muddy Waters" pretty much word for word. but a lot has changed since 98 lol ***
Some muddy waters 2 and cleaning the house
Callin' another Blues Stringer back home. The passing of Johnny Winters is very sad. He was a true Texas bluesman, and a big proponent in the blues resurgent that was starting in the late 1960s. He did a lot in the promulgation of this uniquely beautiful American artform, by bridging the gaps between race and generation. His collaborations with such blues artists as Muddy Waters, on the landmark albums "Hard Mud" and "Hard Again"are legendary. The Blues had a baby and his name was Johnny Winters.
The guitarist, who won Grammys for producing Muddy Waters and co-wrote Rock Roll Hoochie Koo, was on tour in Europe at the time of his death
Very sorry to hear about the passing of Johnny Winter. A giant of the blues. A peer of Hendrix. He resurrected Muddy Waters' career, producing his Grammy winning 'Hard Again' album. I first saw him when I was 16 at Le Rendezvous in Winnipeg. I work closely with his record company and pass along my condolences to all of his friends and family.
I'm saddened to hear about the death of Johnny Winter. The main reason I liked him was that he resurrected the career of my favorite, Muddy Waters, getting him back to his Blues roots that Chess Records had forced him to leave in the late 60s. Johnny produced Muddy's very best albums and brought him back to his rightful place at the top of the Blues world.
I love the album Hard Again he did with Muddy Waters in the 80s.
RIP Johnny Winter! One of the best slide bluesman ever to walk this earth. There is a lot of history with Johnny and the Brooks family starting back in the 1950's with a young Johnny and Edgar muscling their way through to crowd to get to the front row to see Guitar Junior aka Lonnie Brooks. Their friendship began when both asked a young Guitar Junior for a guitar pick. And the rest was history. Winning a talent show using a couple guitar junior songs to securing the highest paid contract ever by a major label to the highest stardom ever for a rock and roller bluesman. Coming back full circle decades later to record with Lonnie in the studio on The title track "Wound Up Tight" and the movies soundtrack darling "Got Lucky Last Night" then ultimately recording a Lonnie song and making a precedent video of "Don't Take Advantage of Me" for Alligator Records. Johnny Winter thank you for all you have done with keeping the Blues alive ...recording all the great albums with Mr. Richard Shurman and especially my . ...

His boat will be hitting some muddy waters
The Blues Community has lost a blues legend at age 70. Muddy Waters thought so much of him he told the world that.
that'd make more sense, also in service with both Ukraine and Russia which will muddy the waters even further.
In addition to his own stuff, Johnny Winter also produced Muddy Waters’ great 70s albums:.
Without Johnny Cash, I probably would not have played music. Without Alvin Lee & Johnny Winter,two recent departures, I probably would not have played guitar. RIP Johnny, a true legend in American Music who really helped open young aspiring guitarist's minds into the treasure chest of music we had right here at home.The Blues of Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Elmore James, Albert King, Freddie King...and many others. Thanks for some of the most influential concerts I was able to see, and it was such an honor opening for you a time or two along the way.
Another one bites the dust. RIP Johnny, you white wizard.
Now I know how Johnny Winter felt when Muddy Waters Died. . Rest Well Johnny.
there's lots of militant feminists that believe all men are inherently evil. They muddy the waters but they still exist

1924-07-08 *The birth of Johnnie Johnson on this date in 1924 is marked on this date. He was an African American musician and composer. Born in Fairmont, West Virginia, Johnson first played piano at the age of 4. By his twenties, he was an accomplished jazz and blues player on the club circuit in Chicago, where he had apprenticed under Muddy Waters and Albert King. A self-taught musician, bandleader and composer, Johnson composed the riffs for many of Berry's most famous tunes, including "Maybellene," "Sweet Little Sixteen" and "Rock and Roll Music," which Berry transposed to guitar. Berry wrote his best-known song, "Johnny B. Goode," in tribute to Johnson. But it was Johnson who actually gave Berry his first big break. On New Year's Eve in 1952, Johnson, then fronting the his own trio in St. Louis, was stuck. His sax player fell ill and he needed an emergency replacement, so he called in his pal Berry, a promising young guitarist, to fill in. The show was a hit, Johnson asked Berry to join the band, and ...

Minnie Julia Riperton Rudolph (November 8, 1947 – July 12, 1979), known professionally as Minnie Riperton, was an American singer-songwriter best known for her 1975 single "Lovin' You". She was married to songwriter and music producer Richard Rudolph from 1972 until her death in 1979. They had two children: music engineer Marc Rudolph and actress/comedienne Maya Rudolph. Riperton grew up on Chicago's South Side. As a child, she studied music, drama, and dance at Chicago's Lincoln Center. In her teen years, she sang lead vocals for the Chicago-based girl group, The Gems. Her early affiliation with the legendary Chicago-based Chess Records afforded her the opportunity to sing backup for various established artists such as Etta James, Fontella Bass, Ramsey Lewis, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, and Muddy Waters. While at Chess, Riperton also sang lead for the experimental rock/soul group Rotary Connection, from 1967 to 1971. In 1969 Riperton, along with Rotary Connection, played in the first Catholic Rock Mass at ...
TBT: "I Just Want to Make Love to You" was a blues song written by Willie Dixon in 1954 and first recorded by Muddy Waters. But Foghat's version in 1972 made it a worldwide hit! The song has been used in the films like Dazed and Confused as well as Halloween II. It was also used as introductory music to Wolfman Jack's radio show in the 1970's. So if you are a child of the 70's, close your eyes and reminisce of those hot humid days taking "mains" or going out to Ordway for some semi-cold 3.2 Schlitz keggar beer. This music will make your night! So crank up the volume!
My open house is gonna have so much Muddy Waters and Robert Johnson and Howlin Wolf it's gonna be so bangin.
Most mornings, I wake up with some old rock song playing in my head. I've always wondered why - do the lyrics of that particular song hold meaning for me? Last night, I finally got the answer. My dream self hangs out with rock stars, some living/some dead. Last night, my dream self started a blog for John Entwistle of The Who. He loved it & asked me to meet him. He was filming a rock video featuring an overweight white girl, long dark hair, pretty voice. I told him this was genius because that's the kind of music video people want - featuring regular people, not Hollywood types. I manifested Muddy Waters & he sang with the girl for the 2nd half of the jam session. Twas magical.
Stevie Ray always is, Zep too. Muddy Waters. On a massive John Martyn binge at the moment. Too much music, not enough hours...

know this blues started from slaves that's original gangsta. It began in Africa with one tribe kidnapping people from neighbouring villages, who were then forced on to ships and taken off to America. They were eventually sold into slavery for a few hundred dollars each and made to work on the plantations in the south. With them came their customs, language, dress and their songs which would be sung in the cotton fields to help the days go by. From these people came the children who grew up to become the great Blues singers and musicians whose stories will be told in the pages that follow. Most, like Charlie Patton, Willie Dixon, Magic Sam, Bo Diddley, Sonny Boy Williamson II, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker & B.B. King came from Mississippi, while others came from the surrounding areas, Jimmy Witherspoon from Arkansas, Blind Willie McTell and Tampa Red from Georgia, Leadbelly, Memphis Minnie and Little Walter from Louisiana, but still all from the south. Also from this area William Christopher ...

You may go if you wish. But remember this: walk away now and you walk away from your crafts, your skills, your vocations; leaving the next generation with nothing but recycled, digitally-sampled techno-grooves, quasi-synth rhythms, pseudo-songs of violence-laden gangsta-rap, acid pop, and simpering, saccharine, soulless slush. Depart now and you forever separate yourselves from the vital American legacies of Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Jimmy Reed, Memphis Slim, Blind Boy Fuller, Louis Jordan, Little Walter, Big Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson I and II, Otis Redding, Jackie Wilson, Elvis Presley, Leiber and Stoller, and Robert K. Weiss. Turn your backs now and you snuff out the fragile candles of blues, R&B and soul, and when those flames flicker and expire, the light of the world is extinguished because the music which has moved mankind through seven decades leading to the millennium will wither and die on the vine of abandonment and neglect

"I found my way to the Blues stage at the first Ann Arbor Blues Fest, and was completely smitten. Getting to play at such an important milestone festival had my head spinning. That was my awakening to the Blues, and I couldn’t have been among a better line-up: Son House, Muddy Waters, BB King, Freddy King, Lightnin’ Hopkins, and the list went on and on. Solidified into the Detroit music scene, I found my calling, but it was to be a bit illusive, while I continued my music education over the years, I was also free to pursue another of my loves, acting, where I was able to snag two different life changing musical plays: Hair and Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band On The Road, appearing in both of the Broadway productions. Having been in Hair afforded me the opportunity to land a recording contract with Motown Records, along with Meatloaf, to record the our duo album Stoney And Meatloaf.

John Slaughter: Electric guitar We have sadly to announce that John Slaughter passed away on August 15, 2010. We all have lost a very good friend and a fantastic musician. Rip, dear John - we all will miss you very much - your music lives on! A special page as well as a message board has been installed for obituaries. Chris Barber’s bands have almost always had a guitarist (as opposed to a banjoist) since Alexis Korner was a band member in 1949. In the 1950s American stars such as Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Muddy Waters, and Brownie McGhee (of Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee) all played guitar with the band, as did Lonnie Donegan, Johnny Duncan, and *** Bishop in the Skiffle Group. By the early 1960s, however, Chris realised he needed a permanent blues guitarist, and set about finding one. At about the same time a young musician was starting out on his hoped-for career, first playing five-string banjo, as his brother wanted a banjo player in his own traditional jazz band. A year later John Slaughter switche ...

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, ...

All the News & Grits, Occasional Update: The Library of Congress is releasing some more recordings in their very popular "Unauthorized Home Conversations Recordings" series. These recordings have been subsidized by the NBA, so the # of sales is inconsequential. In their publicity statement, the NBA said that it is completely untrue that some of the recordings coming soon would include Magic Johnson, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Johnson, Son House, Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Joe Louis, Jackie Robinson, Jim Brown, Kingfish, Archie Bunker, Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson, Ralph David Abernathy, Redd Foxx, Moms Mabley, Lenny Bruce, Wilt Chamberlain, Lord Buckley, Muhammad Ali, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Isaiah Thomas, Julius Erving, Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, Whoopi Goldberg, O.J.

Yuh ever wanted something so bad , yuh would do anything in your power to get it. It sound so good , so easy , and yet , it is so hard. If I had the power tho... I wouldn't even use it . Only, because I would rather go as far as I need to , just to get it. If that means I have to crawl through muddy waters, and over high moutains, and get all dirty , and nasty like an ole' country girl. I Will! And when I tell yuh , when I get done climbing , there is no way I'm climbing down ALONE! If I can hold up 3 years on a job , who said I can't keep holding. I don't think I can give up now. wtbs: I Want It!

People think they can treat you any kind of way when they have the upper hand. The reality of it is, when it's all said and done, I'm standing on a bridge, and you're under it standing in muddy waters. Why? Because God is my bridge over troubled waters. Soon enough you're gonna just drift right away from me, and I'll still be smiling. So smile my friends, it confuses the devil. Be blessed.

Earlier this evening, I watched "Cadillac Records" for about the fifth time just so I could watch the strong and great performance of actor Jeffrey Wright as Muddy Waters. Not sure why this brother's gift of acting is so-underrated, but he is far-deserving of Oscar-nominated roles in the "best actor" category.

On the morning of July 27, 1979, I stood on the banks of the Mekong River... As I looked at the swirling, reddish muddy waters, I thought about recent times when I had seen the bloated bodies of Hmong women and girls-slain by the the communist Pathet Lao and Vietnamese river patrols-held afloat by their heavy and tough hemp skirts snagged in drifting debris.

In April 1967, he formed Traffic with Jim Capaldi, Dave Mason & Chris Wood. In 1968 Winwood played the organ on the song "Voodoo Chile" on the Jimi Hendrix album Electric Ladyland. He formed the supergroup Blind Faith in 1969 with Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, and Ric Grech.

The Great Koko Taylor turned it all upside down when she took 'I'm a Man' and changed the gender. Funny, after seeing Willie Dixon and Muddy Waters perform this many times I always thought it was just another Willie Dixon tune. It was actually written by Bo Diddly (incidentally Willie Dixon played the bass on the original recording).

Part three of review of my ALL TIME TOP 50 ALBUMS five at a time before I reveal the NUMBER 1 ALBUM of ALL TIME: Did any of your favorites make it? The Black Angels: Directions to See a Ghost (The best new band I've heard in years. Headphones alone in a chair or crank it up to ear bleeding levels. Sonic Awesomeness!!) Johnny Cash: At Folsom Prison & San Quentin (The Man in Black at the quintessential period of his career. The original "punk rocker".) The Doors: Waiting for the Sun (Their best song writing and most creative music of their far too brief career.) Muddy Waters: 20th Century Masters-The Millennium Collection (The father of modern blues. Every track is a blues staple. PLAY LOUD) Bauhaus: Press the Eject and Give the Tape (Proof the minimalism can be more powerful the mindless overindulgence. Eerie, haunting and magical.)
GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN R.I.P. EARL !! Died: April, 21, 1970 Earl Hooker born: January 15, 1929 – died: April 21, 1970, was an American Chicago Blues guitarist, perhaps best known for his slide guitar playing. Considered a "musician's musician",[1] Hooker performed with blues artists such as Sonny Boy Williamson II, Junior Wells, and John Lee Hooker (a cousin) as well as fronting his own bands. An early player of the electric guitar, Hooker was influenced by the modern urban styles of T-Bone Walker and Robert Nighthawk. As a band leader, he recorded several singles and albums, in addition to recording with well-known artists. His "Blue Guitar", a popular Chicago area slide-guitar instrumental single, was later overdubbed with vocals by Muddy Waters and became the popular "You Shook Me". In the late 1960s, Hooker began performing on the college and concert circuit and had several recording contracts. Just as his career was on an upswing, Earl Hooker died in 1970 at age 41 after a lifelong struggle with ...

Big Walter Horton, sometimes known as Shakey Walter Horton, is one of the most influential blues harmonica players of all time, and a particular pioneer in the field of amplified harmonica. He isn't as widely known as his fellow Chicago Blues pioneers Little Walter and Sonny Boy Williamson II, due mostly to the fact that, as a rather shy, quiet individual, he never had much taste for leading his own bands or recording sessions. But his style was utterly distinctive, marked by an enormous, horn-like tone, virtuosic single-note lines, fluid phrasing, and an expansive sense of space. Horton's amplified harp work graced sides by Muddy Waters, Jimmy Rogers, Otis Rush, Johnny Shines, Tampa Red, and many others; he was frequently cited as an inspiration by younger players, and most accounts of his life mention a testimonial from legendary bassist/songwriter Willie Dixon, who once called Horton "the best harmonica player I ever heard." Horton was born April 6, 1918, in Horn Lake, MS, near Memphis. He began teachi ...

Happy Solar Return 04/03/14 - Louis Satterfield: Pioneer and one of the architects of Earth, Wind & Fire "If You Wanna Get Down You Gotta Take It On Up!" Earth Wind & Fire fame was just a small part of this great musicians life. Other bands included The Pharaohs and The Jazzmen. He played bass on many great classics from Chess Records, recording with Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf, Buddy Rich, Little Milton and many others. Not forgetting his greatest bass line from Fontella Bass's hit "Rescue Me". He also played trombone on many Chicago Soul classics of the Chi-lites, Tyrone Davis, Jackie Wilson being but a few. He has toured extensively and recorded with Phil Collins through out the 80's and early 90s. Louis had been involved with a court battle, recently, involving Phil Collins in a Court Suit, along with Rahmlee Davis, regarding a live album and alleged royalties dating back to 1990. Before his death he had been working and touring with Cash McCall. The music world has lost a great musician, may he R.I.P.

Today In Rock History : April 1 1939 Rudolph Isley was born. 1947 Leonard and Phillip Chess change the name of their fledgling Chicago record label to Chess, record Muddy Waters' "I Can't Be Satisfied" and "Feel Like Going Home." 1949 "Trouble Blues" by Charles Brown enters the R&B charts, which it tops for 15 weeks. 1949 Granville "Stick" McGhee's "Drinkin' Wine Spo-Dee-O-Dee" hits the Juke Box chart, becoming the first Atlantic record to have national impact. 1951 Muddy Waters' "Louisiana Blues" reaches on the R&B charts. 1956 Roy Orbison's first Sun single, "Ooby Dooby," is released.

Hey Gerd, whats up ? This song is for you . Have fun ! ^"Six Strings Down" is a song written by Art Neville, Eric Kolb, Aaron Neville, Cyril Neville, Kelsey Smith, and Jimmie Vaughan, and which first appeared on Jimmie Vaughan's album Strange Pleasure in 1995. The song was written as a eulogy to Jimmie Vaughan's brother, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and, by extension, many other fallen guitarists. In its original incarnation, the song takes the form of an acoustic blues. The opening line, "Alpine Valley/Middle of the Night" refers to the Alpine Valley Music Theater near East Troy, Wisconsin where the helicopter carrying Stevie Ray Vaughan and several others crashed following a concert in 1990. The song references many other deceased blues music guitarists including Jimi Hendrix (the "voodoo chile"), Albert Collins, Muddy Waters, Lightnin' Hopkins, T-Bone Walker, Eddie "Guitar Slim" Jones, Freddie King, and Albert King. The song's refrain mourns that "Heaven done called another blues stringer back home". All-star v ...
Had a great time for a one nighter in the Keys. Got to practice my heavy rain riding skills on the way down through Palm Beach County on Tuesday. Took Mom out to dinner and stayed at her house in Hialeah that night and on to the Keys the next day with a lunch stop at Alabama Jacks. Good time partying with the cousins in Islamorada till 2 AM. (I was the deadbeat. They went to the Hog Heaven bar till 4, but they sure paid for it the next morning) Rode north on Thursday, made the mistake of riding through downtown Miami seeking out Mustang Sallys, a saloon on South Miami Ave. Never got to it due to unending traffic gridlock, construction, closed bridge over the Miami River, etc. I keep saying "never again", then a couple of years later I find myself overheating on the air cooled Harley in Miami traffic!

March 20, 1935 -Influential Blues drummer best known as the inventor of the "double shuffle" beat, as well as guitarist, Sam Lay was born in Birmingham, AL. Today Sam's celebrating his 79th Birthday Lay began his career in 1957, as the drummer for the Original Thunderbirds, and soon after became the drummer for the harmonica player Little Walter. In the early 1960s, Lay began recording and performing with prominent blues musicians such as Willie Dixon, Howlin' Wolf, Eddie Taylor, John Lee Hooker, Junior Wells, Bo Diddley, Magic Sam, Jimmy Rogers, Earl Hooker, and Muddy Waters. The recordings Lay made during this time, along with Waters' Fathers and Sons album recorded in 1969, are considered to be among the definitive works from the careers of Waters and Wolf. In the mid 1960s, Lay joined the Paul Butterfield Blues Band and recorded and toured extensively with them. Bob Dylan, with Lay as his drummer, was the first performer to introduce electric-rock at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965. Lay also recorde ...

This week saw an interesting, yet widely discussed cash offer by Temasek Holdings (TH) for Olam, to buy up whatever shares TH hasn't already own. One topic of discussion I just read online was on why TH is buying a seemingly financially unsound company, which was attacked by short seller Muddy Waters less than 2 years ago. Another topic was using various investing strategies to show that Olam, at the offer price made by TH, is simply too overpriced. These two hot topics surrounding the takeover offer inevitably leads to the topic of TH not doing the justice to monies invested by its stakeholders. Officially, as explained by TH on many occasions, TH doesn't manage the CPF monies of Singaporeans, nor related Singapore government funds. However, that explanation simply leads to more questions, like then where do organizations like TH and GIC get their immense amount of funds for global and local investments, made by themselves and their various wholly owned subsidiaries. A lot of comments made by other reade ...

Monarchs Pub, in THE EATON CHELSEA HOTEL, and 'Blues Thursdays' proudly present... The J.W.

Guitar World Magazine featured a CD called ‘Guitar Masters Vol. 2’ that put Jones alongside guitar stars B.B.

  The acknowledged kingpin of the Louisiana school of blues, Lightnin' Slim built his style on his grainy but expressive vocals and rudimentary guitar work, with usually nothing more than a harmonica and a drummer in support. It was down-home country blues edged two steps further into the mainstream, first by virtue of his electric guitar, and second by the sound of the local Crowley, LA musicians who backed him being bathed in simmering, pulsating tape echo. As the first great star of producer J.D. Miller's blues talent stable, Lightnin' Slim had a successful formula that scored regional hits on the Nashville-based Excello label for over a decade, with one of them, "Rooster Blues," making the national R&B charts in 1959. Combining the country ambience of a Lightnin' Hopkins with the plodding insistence of a Muddy Waters, Lightnin' Slim's music belonged uniquely to him, the perfect blues raconteur, even when he was reshaping others' material to his dark, somber style.   He also possessed one of the trul ...

Boss Stewart gig at Silantro, St. Annes on 1st March - Boss Stewart and Friends are a newly assembled band of highly talented musicians. We play the best blues-inspired music around, think Eric Clapton, JJ Cale, Tom Wates, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters and Willie Dixon. There is also a smattering of Mark Knopfler, Bob Dylan and John Mellencamp. We are not into heavy rock or taking the paint off the walls, our audiences can sometimes even talk while we are playing, but we prefer them to listen!

DIED FEB 28 2008, Michael George Smith (6 December 1943 – 28 February 2008) was an English singer, songwriter and music producer. In the 1960s, Smith was the lead vocalist and keyboard player for the Dave Clark Five. The band was a leading unit in the British Invasion of the United States, and were the Beatles' main British rivals before the emergence of the Rolling Stones. 2008, Drummer Buddy Miles, who played with Jimi Hendrix in his last regular group, Band of Gypsys, died aged 60 at his home in Austin, Texas after struggling with a long-term illness. Born George Allen Miles in Omaha, Nebraska, Buddy's nickname was a tribute to his idol, jazz drummer Buddy Rich. Rich also played with The Delfonics, The Ink Spots, Wilson Pickett, Electric Flag, Stevie Wonder, David Bowie, Muddy Waters and Barry White. In the 1980s, he achieved a certain amount of notoriety in the US as the vocalist on the celebrated claymation California Raisins commercials. 2010, Tom "T-Bone" Wolk, who played bass for nearly 30 years ...
USA TODAY Article! Malcolm White, director of the Mississippi Development Authority's Tourism Division, is now promoting that link with the Mississippi slogan: "Birthplace of American Music." and that is so true! That's what we prove here in our Rock & Blues Museum and one of the reasons for moving our Museum from the Netherlands to Mississippi in 2005. Roger Stolle wrote for DELTA MAGAZINE quoting me back in 2009 On February 7th, 1964, four lads from Liverpool stepped off a Pan Am Yankee Clipper at the newly renamed JFK International Airport. They were met by throngs of bemused reporters and obsessed fans. As the story goes, a reporter asked the young Brits, "What are you most looking forward to seeing in America?" John Lennon replied, "Bo Diddley and Muddy Waters." To which another reporter supposedly asked, "Muddy Waters? Where's that?" Paul McCartney laughed and said, "Don't you know who your own famous people are here?" Theo Dasbach of the Rock & Blues Museum in Clarksdale was living in his Holland a ...

Fun Fact Friday! Did you know Cal, from has cited Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, and Big L as his musical influences
Lets talk about RnB how it degraded its quality since contemporary artists and timeline ruined it pretty bad. As a plain, a regular joe music listener(in simple words) rnb never evolved, rather it has become like the disease thats eating away the purity it had long ago. Maybe I have a bad taste of music or the knowledge of it is inadequete for me to open my mouth, but listening to and or reading about Louis Jordan (1938), Johny Otis (1945), Muddy Waters, and classic examples of British Blues and non other than Beloved Pink Floyd, it seems the evolution of Rnb became a plague like deviation from a blessing to a basic low quality music with modern upgraded vibes.
I've noticed several musicians posting their top 12 albums that influenced them. Well, I'm no musician but certainly admire those who have the skill to write and/or perform music.

Now, post your own list and/or go listen to some good music you love.
"Muddy Waters (born McKinley Morganfield, April 4, 1913 - April 30, 1983) transformed the soul of the rural South into the sound of the city, electrifying the blues at a pivotal point in the early postwar period. His recorded legacy, particularly the wealth of sides he cut in the Fifties, is one of the great musical treasures of this century. Aside from Robert Johnson, no single figure is more important in the history and development of the blues than Waters. The real question as regards his lasting impact on popular music isn’t “Who did he influence?” but - as Goldmine magazine asked in 2001 - “Who didn’t he influence?” Above all others, it was Waters who linked the country blues of his native Mississippi Delta with the urban blues that were born in Chicago. Waters bought his first electric guitar in 1944 and revolutionized the blues with the recordings he began making in 1948. His amplified combo consisted of himself on slide guitar and vocals, a second guitarist, bass, drums, piano and harm ...

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 ...

Michael Bloomfield would have been 70 years old today. *** drugs. Drug addiction one of the most insidious diseases took this great guitar player too soon. In the mid 1960's for a young guitar player playing on rock and roll records, Michael Bloomfield was like Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton. He did not not play like those guys, he was better than everyone else, like those two! After hearing Bloomfield play on the Bob Dylan Album Highway 61 and the first Paul Butterfield album I knew that Michael Bloomfield knew things that I wanted to steal! Psycheldelic music seemed like kid's music after hearing this man play. Michael Bloomfield was a true bluesman. I have written about "mojo". Man, Bloomfield had mojo. He grew up wealthy. He also grew up in Chicago. He also grew up playing with all the blues legends that lived in Chicago. If Buddy Guy and Muddy Waters say you can play the blues, you can play the blues. How did a rich,, Jewish teenager,from Chicago's wealthy North side, end up playing with Sleepy Jo ...
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 ...

House of blues to become museum? CHICAGO – The house that once belonged to legendary blues musician Muddy Waters is one step closer to becoming the tribute fans have long envisioned. A prospective owner who hopes to turn the home into a museum is expected to close on the property today, said Chicago attorney Erik Miles, who represents the owner, Chandra Cooper. Miles declined to disclose the buyer’s identity. Only a year ago, many feared the house might be torn down, after building inspectors found “dangerous” conditions. –MCT News Service

Artist Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine With his astonishingly accomplished guitar playing, Stevie Ray Vaughan ignited the blues revival of the '80s. Vaughan drew equally from bluesmen like Albert King, Otis Rush, and Muddy Waters and rock & roll players like Jimi Hendrix and Lonnie Mack, as well as the stray jazz guitarist like Kenny Burrell, developing a uniquely eclectic and fiery style that sounded like no other guitarist, regardless of genre. Vaughan bridged the gap between blues and rock like no other artist had since the late '60s. For the next seven years, Stevie Ray was the leading light in American blues, consistently selling out concerts while his albums regularly went gold. His tragic death in 1990 only emphasized his influence in blues and American rock & roll. Born and raised in Dallas, Vaughan began playing guitar as a child, inspired by older brother Jimmie. When he was in junior high school, he began playing in a number of garage bands, which occasionally landed gigs in local nightclu ...

Stephen Peter "Steve" Marriott (30 January 1947 – 20 April 1991) was an English musician, songwriter and frontman of two notable rock and roll bands, spanning over two decades. Marriott is remembered for his powerful singing voice which belied his small stature, and for his aggressive approach as a guitarist in mod rock bands Small Faces (1965–1969) and Humble Pie (1969–1975 and 1980–1981). Marriott was inducted posthumously into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame in 2012 as a member of Small Faces. In Britain, Marriott became a popular, often-photographed mod style icon through his role as lead singer and guitarist with the Small Faces in the mid to late 1960s. Marriott was influenced from an early age by his heroes including Buddy Holly, Booker T & the MG's, Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Muddy Waters and Bobby Bland. In later life Marriott became disillusioned with the music industry and turned his back on the big record companies, remaining in relative obscurity. He returned to his music roots playing ...

BB & Muddy Waters. Ha ha. How ironic. No. I didn't get muddy water on me. Just in me. Anyways, when you're stuck in the muck, rock the lock. It'll set you free. Truth. God's my Rock.

Blues at the Globe - Julian Piper. "Hi, an old musician friend of mine once said 'If you can't play the Blues right - don't mess with 'em..' - and he was right. Playing Blues music is rarely done in the hope of financial gain, but it often takes place in a state of high reverence for the past and the awareness of continuing something called 'tradition'. In my own case, when many of my friends were mainlining on the Beatles, my teenage years were spent thrilling to the sounds of Sam 'Lightnin' Hopkins and Muddy Waters, wrestling with first a cigar box and later a guitar with a neck like a banana, trying to copy the raw Blues emanating from the scratched vinyl on my distorted Dansette record player. And one day I hoped I'd own a red Fender Stratocaster like Hank Marvin, stand on a stage, play it LOUD, and that one day I'd look out and see the girl of my dreams. I'm pleased to say that over the years it's all happened.give or take a few errors along the way." - JULIAN PIPER. Julian has played on two albums t ...

Captain Beefheart (Don Glen Vliet) was born January 15, 1941 in Glendale, California. Vliet claimed that he was related to adventurer and author Richard Halliburton and the cowboy actor Slim Pickens, and said that he remembered being born. He began painting and sculpting at age three. He developed his taste and interest in music, listening "intensively" to the Delta blues of Son House and Robert Johnson, jazz artists such as Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk and Cecil Taylor, and the Chicago Blues of Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters. During his early teenage years Vliet would sometimes socialize with members of local bands such as "The Omens" and "The Blackouts", although his interests were still focused upon an art career. The Omens' guitarists Alexis Snouffer and Jerry Handley would later become founders of "The Magic Band" and The Blackouts' drummer, Frank Zappa, would later capture Vliet's vocal capabilities on record for the first time. He wanted the band to "live" the Trout Mask Replica a ...

This is a long Excerpt - Book entry Jan 12/13/14 2014 Our style/our musical identity.,, I get asked all the time who our influences are. Truthfully they include everyone from Elvis , Muddy Waters., The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Dr John the Nightripper, The Beach Boys, The Byrds, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Burden and many other home grown bands. But at the end of the day it was The British Invasion of the late sixties - the dark, yet melodic music from Western Europe and the fashion it ushered in. In many ways Bluebeard is more like David Bowie in regards to style. In a word: Change . Like Bowie, Bluebeard reinvented itself as if signed to a major label with resources and impunity. We were in control 90% of the time. The 10% we weren't, came in when the band allowed (out of frustration or ?) others in the power seat to dictate or strongly suggest doing something we were not comfortable doing. But 90% was 100% more than Most other acts that signed their souls and rights away. Like David Bowie, we played what th ...

SRV is an obvious choice. John Lee Hooker would be REAL COOL. Muddy Waters and Albert Collins too!
LEGACY: Ry Cooder Ry Cooder slips, picks, The slide man has the control. Competition too He is a great slide player. So is Sonny Landreth, Les Dudek, Muddy Waters, Johnny Winter, and Bonny Raitt is a very good slide player too. What distinguishes Ry Cooder is his complete knowledge of the Delta sound; just listen to him hold the notes for John Lee Hooker. The next minute he can be playing like Santana or a melodic jazzy piece. That’s his legacy, he is very eclectic in style, like Oscar Peterson ‘nuf said.
The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London in 1962 who were in the vanguard of the British Invasion of bands that became popular in the US from 1964–65 and an integral part of the counterculture of the 1960s. The Rolling Stones were also instrumental in making blues a major part of rock and roll, and of changing the international focus of blues culture to the less sophisticated blues typified by Chess Records artists such as Muddy Waters, writer of "Rollin' Stone", the song after which the band is named. American music critic Robert Palmer said the Rolling Stones' "remarkable endurance" stems from being "rooted in traditional verities, in rhythm-and-blues and soul music" while "more ephemeral pop fashions have come and gone". The first settled line-up had Brian Jones on guitar and harmonica, Ian Stewart on piano, *** Jagger on lead vocals and harmonica, Keith Richards on guitar and backing vocals, Bill Wyman on bass and Charlie Watts on drums. Jones left the band less than a month pri ...
Beem sitting here hangin with my son and his friends. It is an honor for me to do so. I am flattered that they would want to do so. Been turning them on to Muddy Waters, Louis Jordan, Robert Johnson, The Gourds and various others. These are all kids that range from 16 to 19. I am amazed at the intelligence and honesty they express to me. They are not lost, they are just young human beings trying to find their way in life just as we all did and hopefully still are. I am truly honored to be a part of their life. I learn from them more than I can ever imagine!

PAUL Filipowicz - SAINTS & SINNERS Singer-songwriter, guitarist and harmonica player Paul Filipowicz (Chicago, 1950) (abbreviated PF) is already quite young by his sisters, who pianists in the local church, with music in touch.
