Today is Muddy Water’s 86th birthday. Happy Birthday to Muddy! It was only appropriate that we choose a song from one of the kings of the blues, or as many say, the king of the blues. We chose “Baby Please Don’t Go”, but it’s really a hard selection to make. Muddy is one of the artists that has been covered more-so than you know, his influence upon rock n roll is impressive. Every 60’s and 70’s rock band owes him a thanks – especially the big ones (Beatles, The Doors, Rolling Stones, Zeppelin, etc.). What we consider to be “classic blues”, was shaped by the music of this man, maybe more-so than anyone else.
