American Blues Scene would like to introduce Ron Beatteay, our latest writer, and a recent video Ron shot of a wildly talented blues artist.
In this video, blues master Muddy Waters plays scorching, soul-bending live slide guitar on "Train Fare Blues". Muddy was one of, if not the greatest slide guitar player to have ever lived.
Here's a special treat! Buddy Guy, Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones, and Johnny Lang, all jamming on one magnificent stage!
We've got three tasty blues videos for your viewing pleasure, including Keith Richards hitting some signature licks, and B.B. King on David Letterman!
Check this out! Twenty two minutes of blues bliss, with songs and interviews by Taj Mahal, Buddy Guy, Pinetop Perkins, Hubert Sumlin, and Slam Allen.
Hugh Laurie is best known for playing the character "House" from the hit TV show of the same name. Many don't know, however, that Hugh is an avid fan of our favorite music, the blues. Hugh announced over the summer that he is recording a New Orleans style blues album!
