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!

Boogie Woogie Dance - George Worthmore

George Worthmore, a star in the New York City music scene for over twenty years, began with a one-year stint as a guitarist with Kinky Friedman. He's played backup guitar for Bo Diddley, Ben E. King, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Lou Christy, and The Platters. He's also played shows as a second guitarist with Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Cassidy in Hot Tuna.

Performing with own his band, The Divebombers, he was joined on stage by such stars as Billy Idol and Paul Schaffer, (band leader on the Letterman show) and Chris Spedding. Guitar monster Rick Derringer was a frequent guest artist, as well as producing George's early work.

George studied with Dave Van Ronk and Ian Buchannon, both students of the Rev. Gary Davis. He had the honor of playing with Johnny Shines and Robert Jr. Lockwood when they were in New York City. He has also played as a regularly featured act at both Manny's Car Wash and Dan Lynch's Blues Bar, New York City top venues.
