BiographyJesse Fuller was San Francisco's most famous one-man band, playing a variety of homemade instruments off various parts of his body while singing and strumming guitar chords. His music was a mild version of Country Blues filtered through the innovation and imagination of his self-accompaniment, and his voice had a warm, soothing, textured tone that was later compared to Cat Stevens. Fuller's major hit, "San Francisco Bay Blues," was covered by Janis Joplin, and his "Beat it on Down the Line" was often performed by the Grateful Dead.
