I got into electric Blues when I was fourteen and Dick Brunning made me listen to Lightnin’ Hopkins for hours on end! I became enamoured with the amplified guitar and grew to love it. I progressed on to Howlin’ Wolf and John Lee Hooker and then I was completely hooked!
These are my favourite electric Blues singers (and guitarists):
Sonny Boy Williamson
Hound Dog Taylor
John Lee Hooker
Billy Boy Arnold
I always go back to the Blues! I love slide guitar! I love the energy!
