My Perfect Electric Blues Band – So many to choose from!!!

Opher's World tributes cover

Vocals – Howlin’ Wolf – the greatest and most powerful voice in the world from his six foot seven 300 lb frame.

Slide Guitar – Elmore James – still the king of all slide guitarists. Nobody captures that sound!!

Other lead guitar – Albert King – He was born under a bad sign and I like him better than Freddie or BB. I’d add Muddy Waters to do some of those searing early runs he used to do!

Bass – Willie Dixon – The greatest exponent of Chicago Blues Bass playing

Piano – Either Otis Spann the pianist with Muddy Waters or Johnnie Johnson the guy who helped propel Chuck Berry.

Drums – Fred Below – the Chess Records drummer who backed Elmore, Bo, and everybody else.

Harp – Sonny Boy Williamson – could he blow!!! Ah well I had to pass on Shakey Horton, Little Walter and Billy Boy Arnold.

Songwriter – Willie Dixon – he wrote all the great hits for Muddy, Howlin’ and others!

I'd like to hear from you...
