That is Sonny Boy Williamson the second, Willie Rice Miller. A superb harp player and showman. Another great that I never managed to see live. But I did see a lot of his stuff on TV. Very Impressive!!
I used to play those old Ches albums to death. Speaking of death – when we were in Mississippi we hunted out his grave and paid homage. It was in the middle of nowhere with an empty whiskey bottle and array of harmonicas! Very fitting.
So today I’m playing some of the great Sonny Boy!!
