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!

John Primer

John Primer (born March 3, 1945, Camden, Mississippi) is an American Chicago blues and electric blues singer and guitarist. He played guitar at Theresa's, a club in Chicago, between 1974 and 1980. He was influenced by Muddy Waters' former sideman, Sammy Lawhorn, who taught him to play slide guitar. He joined the Chicago Blues All-Stars of Willie Dixon in 1979, then the Muddy Waters's band until the latter's death in 1983. Then he joined the Teardrops of Magic Slim and began a solo career on Wolf Records. In 1995 he released, The Real Deal, with songwriting and singing techniques showing the influence of both Dixon and Slim. In 2013, Primer had a nomination for a Blues Music Award in the 'Traditional Blues Male Artist' category
