Can someone please explain to us why Sonny Boy Williamson is not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? (crickets chirping, frogs ribbiting). Exactly. He influenced all the young rock groups of the 60s, from the Allman Brothers to Led Zeppelin. This clip is proof enough that this man embodied all of the greatest characteristics of the blues--from gut-wrenching soul to raw, badass musicianship. Check him playing that harmonica with no hands at the end. Too cool for words. Our archive houses many iconic blues performances from Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Lightning Hopkins, Willie Dixon, Son House, Mississippi Fred McDowell, John Lee Hooker, Big Mama Thornton, T-Bone Walker and Buddy Guy. Our American Folk Blues Festival 1962-1969 DVD series was nominated for a GRAMMY in 2003.
