Re: Influential harp players.
My (blues-heavy) Top 10
1. Little Walter- genius. 'nuff said!
2. Rice Miller (SBWII) The William Blake of blues lyrics. Oh yeah, he could
3. Charlie Musslewhite- I saw Charlie and James Cotton at the Chicago Bluesfest
a couple years ago and it was NUTS!!!
4. James Cotton- The man did an incredible thing. He made it easier to deal with
the fact that Little Walter was gone.
5. Big Walter Horton- The Sun recording are nasty!!!
6. Sugar Blue-- Be-Bop harmonica with shades of blue\
7. John Lee Williamson (SBWI) Acoustic God
8. Junior Wells-- When he's bad he's terrible, but when he's good he's one of
the best. When he and Buddy hook up it's women and children
9. Paul Butterfield-- "Blues With a Feelin'"
10. Adam Gussow- From Satan and Adam. If u want to hear a musical whirlwind
that is strikingly unique check theses guys out. They are
Robert Johnson meets P-Funk meets Ministry. Best Duke Ellington
harp parts i have ever heard.
Rob at UofI
