Artist Of The Week: Pinetop Perkins

Pinetop Perkins is one of the last of the Muddy Waters band still performing. Perkins has made a name of his own over the last 30 years. One of the nicest people you will ever meet. I had the opportunity to sit in with the Soul Searchers when they opened for Pinetop many years ago in Des Moines. It was a great opportunity to talk to the master and to watch his hands as he played. To watch the videos look for the Youtube videos located on the left side of the blog.

You are so lucky to have met this beautiful man, I've sen him "live" but never met him, one of the true greats for whom the word "legend" is so fitting, I sure wish him well and hope he sticks around for a good few years yet
