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!

Magic Slim (born Morris Holt, August 7, 1937, Grenada, Mississippi) is an American blues singer and guitaristMagic Slim (vocal & guitar) and The Teardrops Alabama Junior Pettis (guitar) Nick Holt (bass) and Nate Appelwhite (drums).
Magic Slim was forced to give up playing the piano when he lost his little finger in a cotton gin mishap. He moved first to nearby Grenada. He first came to Chicago in 1955 with his friend and mentor Magic Sam. The elder Magic (Sam) let the younger Magic (Slim) play bass with his band, and gave him his nickname.
Coleman ("Alabama Junior") Pettis (d. April 1, 1988)played rhythm guitar with Slim. Pettis and Slim seemed to be perfectly made for each other playing off of each others fillers.
