GUEST,Hootenanny Blues on TV (28) RE: Blues on TV 28 Oct 18


Dave Sutherland:

Ready Steady Go. As Val mentioned Vicky Wickham was responsible for the blues musicians appearing among all the pop music dross. When we (myself and a couple of fellow work mates) brought Buddy Guy to the UK for the very first time in February of 1965 he too appeared. Unfortunately due to the fact that Buddy moved around quite a bit when playing the mic swung from the front of his body to the back and his vocal got lost. One of the problems of live broadcasts at that time.

PFR:

John Lee 'Sonny Boy' Williamson from Jackson, Tennessee was murdered in Chicago in 1948. Stabbed with an ice pick.
Alec 'Rice' Miller, better known as Sonny Boy Williamson - the one who toured here in the 1960's died at home in Helena, Arkansas in 1965 shortly after returning from the UK.

I have no idea who you saw circa 1975.
