Happy Birthday Elmore James
Today is the late Elmore James 95th birthday. Just going back and listening to his music you can actually hear how many blues musicians he influenced. He was called the King of the Slide Guitar, but his influence went farther than that. This list includes greats like Albert King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, The Allman Brothers, Derek Trucks and many others.
Listen to the music and it will sound familiar, you can hear his influence...
Here is another..
and another song...
Well I hope you enjoy and I will have a new post soon
