LITTLE G.WEEVIL

Imatge
Kennesaw’s Gabor Szucs, better known in local clubs as guitarslinger Little G. Weevil, traveled an unlikely road from Eastern Europe to being named the best solo/duo blues act in the U.S. this month.

Growing up in Budapest Szucs had the same musical tastes as the average kid, until touched by an American legend.
Little G. Weevil, Atlanta bluesman, wins Memphis competition photo HANDOUT, not for resale Little G Weevil of Kennesaw, born Gabor Szucs, won as best solo /duo act at the 29th International Blues Challenge in Memphis earlier this month. “When I was a teenager I mostly listened to heavy metal rock, Metallica and Slayer and stuff,” said Szucs, now an American citizen.
“I was 16 years old, and my brother, who’s a good bass player, one day he showed up with a John Lee Hooker album, and that was a life-changing experience.”

Pinetop Slim   A Tentative Identification?
A singular performer, judging b recorded evidence. Pinetop Slim ranks as one of the top post war 'country' blues enigmas. Frank Scott has reported that 'Pinetop Slim was discovered in 1949 by Joe Bihari. He was playing and singing on a street corner in Atlanta. Georgia and Joe took him to a radio station to record [sleeve notes to Blues From The Deep South Kent (LP) 9004, 1969]. According to his discography in Blues Records (p. 379), Slim recorded seven titles at this session on 23 February 1949. Of these seven titles, four together with an unlisted one, Fast Life are available on the Kent album. Interestingly this album has an alternate take of Applejack Boogie to the one issued on 78 (Colonial 106) and reissued on Country Blues Classics Vol. 2 [Blues Classics (LP) 61]. A…

JOE BEARD

Imatge
Artist Biography by Richard Skelly in allmusic 
Born and raised in Ashland, MS, guitarist Joe Beard grew up with the Murphy brothers, one of whom later found an international following as Matt "Guitar" Murphy. Guitarist Nathan Beauregard lived with Beard's cousin, so he was surrounded by aspiring and veteran blues musicians while growing up, and he began singing at an early age. Beard became interested in playing guitar via the Murphy brothers, who sat in with a young B.B. King when he played at the Roosevelt Lake Club. Beard began to learn guitar at age 17 from Ernest Scruggs, a neighbor, before heading to Chicago.
Beard moved to Rochester, NY, and from time to time would visit one of his brothers in Chicago. He quickly became enamored of the blues being played in clubs there by people like Jimmy Reed and Sonny Boy Williamson. Beard sat in with John Lee Hooker one night and received encouraging words from Hooker, and also later sat in with his idol, Muddy Waters.
