Description
The story of Blues music is the story of musicians meeting in bars, playing for a meal, taking trains to strange places with a guitar and the clothes they stand up in, and working in automobile factories or paint shops to make a living. Some even made it big, to the bright lights, recording studios, and television screens around the world. This is that story, told in a unique collection of first-hand interviews with John Lee Hooker, BB King, Buddy Guy and many more legendary names. Along with the pictures of world-famous photographer Val Wilmer, taken over the last thirty years in the American rural south and urban Blues centres like Chicago, New Orleans and Memphis, these are the people and places that made the Blues.
