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!

CC Rider - Terry Big T Williams

Just a quarter mile from the legendary “crossroads,” a blues guitarist crawls across the floor on his knees as sweat streaks down his face. He's well into his first set of the night as he takes “Catfish Blues” from 0 to 11 and back again. The crowd is on its feet. The cameras are flashing. The sound falls somewhere between Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy and another world. The backing band is all smiles as it locks in tight, waiting for all hell to break loose. He's back on his feet now... slaughtering the guitar as he makes his way into the crowd that quickly surrounds him. Again, he takes the volume up before bringing it back down. The band follows his lead impeccably. He's back on stage now... singing and punctuating each phrase with his deep Delta guitar riffs. He's the real deal. A sure thing. He's the man they call “Big T.” And whether it's a neighborhood juke joint in Clarksdale, Mississippi or a big city blues club in Chicago, Illinois, the result is the same. The crowd stays late, leaves happy and asks, “when's Big T coming back?” As a young boy Big T was inspired by the blues that poured forth from the radio at home, and from the stories his grandmother told about the great blues musicians who lived along the Delta, such as Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker. And Big T would visit Ike Turner, who lived one block away, to watch him play with his band. Today, Big T is a Delta blues legend, touring the world and recording for Matt The Scatt Records.
