Elvin Bishop

Born:

Elvin Bishop’s 2007 release Booty Bumpin’, captures the blues legend at home in front of a live audience, doing what he does best; stirring up a party with a bluesy stew of slide guitar and groovin’ rhythms.

Read "Blues Masters: Elvin Bishop & Charlie Musselwhite and New Moon Jelly Roll Freedom Rockers" reviewed by Doug Collette
