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 The Revelator - Randy Thurman

Randy Thurman was born January 5, 1965 in a small rural town in south east Tennessee. He was 12 years old when he first heard Jimi Hendrix, an event which inspired him to become a vocalist and performer, rather than immediately inspiring him to play guitar. At age 14, Randy started his first band, and the following years were spent performing in a succession of rock bands as a vocalist. Then at age 21, he heard the album "Surfing with the Alien" by Joe Satriani and the madness began. He learned the basics first, chord progressions, scales, and etc. and then honed his shredding abilities by utilizing every spare moment for practice.
A sudden health crisis changed the direction of Randy’s life and music forever, leaving him primarily housebound and captive within his own home for three years. Instead of focusing on the things he couldn’t do, he concentrated on the things that had always been his passion and refuge, and one of those things was music. This time of trial ultimately steered Randy's music towards the blues; one man with one guitar on a journey.
