Artisit Of The Week: Mike Bloomfield

The artist of the week is Mike Bloomfield, one of a handful of white blues artists from Chicago who instead of copying their heroes by listening to the records, but actually went to the southside of Chicago and learned from the masters themselves. Bloomfield was an excellent guitar player that exposed blues to a new audience, and was a great ambassador of the blues during his short lifetime. He died of a drug overdose at the age of 37. To see his videos check out the youtube video box on the right side of the blog.
