Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is one of the best in the genre of blues biographies. Despite the years that have past since Muddy's departure I was left with the feeling that I had known the great man himself. An intimate but respectful view of "the life and times" of one of the greatest historical figures in blues history.

Format: Paperback
every rumour, truth, fact and half truth of the muddy waters legend is examined in a book that is as easy to read as watching a movie. all the great sidemen get their moment in history detailed too. My favourite is all the great harp players. this should be a movie like Ray. Excellent Stuff. packed with pages excellent value

Format: Paperback
This book is a must for any blues fan. It tells the story of one of the great masters of the blues Muddy Waters and how he and other Chicago blues greats like Howling Wolf and Little Walter changed the direction of contempory music forever. It is well told and not only outlines his brilliant musical career but also also his relationships with the Chess brother, his women and some of his children. A great book.

As one of only two biographies of Muddy Waters and this one now being out of print and hard to obtain I found the book a real pleasure. It gives a different narrative and viewpoint to the biography by Sandra Tooze, which, incidentally, is just as good.
