Muddy Waters

By Published: May 30, 2006

It's sad to me that so many people today don't know much about the late Muddy Waters and haven't taken the time to listen to any of the numerous recordings available of this master American musician. When the Beatles came to America for the first time they were asked at their first interview in New York what they most wanted to see. They immediately replied "Muddy Waters and Bo Diddley." The reporter ignorantly replied, "Where's that?" The Beatles laughed, "You Americans don't seem to know your most famous citizens." It's true we don't! Wake up America!!
