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!

A Fool For Your Stockings - Max Drake

Uncle Grub handles the vocals with Max Drake and Rusty Barkley on Guitar. MAX DRAKE has been playing in and recording with blues/R&B bands such as Arhoolie, The Excellos and the Ministers of Sinister since the '60s. More recently, he has lent his fiery fretwork to the late Skeeter Brandon and Big Bill Morganfield before joining forces with The Wicked Mojos in 2005. Max also performs with a stripped-down nasty blues/roots band known as The Buzzkillz Photo is used with permission of Doug Mokaren

  1. I wonder if Max remembers sitting in with an amateur blues band, "Trouble Monkey," in a Montana hotel after playing with Big Bill Morganfield?

    I still have digital recordings of two or three killer solos I'll carry to my GRAVE lol.

    Tweet me at @Zz1pp if you want them, Max: you made our YEAR that night, man.
