CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

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!

I HELD MY BABY LAST NIGHT- JOHN PRIMER


John Primer (born March 3, 1945, Camden, Mississippi) is an American Chicago blues singer and guitarist.
He began playing guitar at the club, Theresa's, in Chicago between 1974 and 1980, where he was influenced by Muddy Waters' former sideman, Sammy Lawhorn, who taught him to play slide guitar. He joined the Chicago Blues All-Stars of Willie Dixon in 1979, then the Muddy Waters's band until the latter's death in 1983. Then he joined the Teardrops of Magic Slim and began a solo career on Wolf Records.

In 1995 he released, The Real Deal, with songwriting and singing techniques showing the influence on him of both Dixon and Slim.
