The simple goal of this blog is to post new and unique music by artists you know and many that you don’t, usually via music videos or video recordings of live performances. I keep my ears to the musical railroad tracks of the world, and only the tastiest bits that I find make it into the ‘biscuit mix.
In celebration of what would have been the blues legend’s 99th birthday, check out this amazing footage from the 1974 Montreux Jazz Festival with Muddy on vocals, Junior Wells on blues harp & Buddy Guy on guitar.
Buddy paid tribute to his friend and mentor on Twitter and Facebook today with these words:
“Today I wish my very dear friend, the late great Muddy Waters, a Happy Birthday. Mud, you are father to us all. Without you there would be no Buddy Guy, so I’m gonna keep doin’ like you told me. I’m gonna keep these mothaf*ckin Blues alive.”
