CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Oakland blues - Mississippi Johnny Waters

Waters changed his name in honor of Muddy Waters,
a major influence as singer and guitarist. He moved to
Oakland, California, in 1956 and performed songs by
Waters, Chuck Berry, and Fats Domino. During the
1970s he performed with harmonica player Mark
Hummel and the Blues Survivors. Despite a 1983
lung operation, he continued performing as a senior
member of the Bay Area blues scene.
