Buddy Flett: Buddy Flett - Rough Edges

Read "Buddy Flett - Rough Edges" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Blues musicians have similar iconic names. The Ur-Blues has Eddie “Son" House, Nehemiah “Skip" James, Tommy Johnson, and Charlie Patton.

Kenny Wayne Shepherd - How I Go (2011)

By Fred Phillips For a guy that once told me in an interview that he couldn't seem to make everyone happy with his mix of blues and rock, Kenny Wayne Shepherd has done pretty well for himself. Coming out of the gate as a 16-year-old kid schooled in the Stevie Ray Vaughan style of blues on ...
