BiographyKnown as both a stinging blues guitarist and a powerful Soul singer, this Mississippi native has long made a name for himself by combining the best of those two worlds. Since the 1950s, he's recorded for top-notch labels like Sun, Chess, Stax, and Malaco, alternating between straight Electric Blues (most of his Sun catalog), horn-driven, Funk-tinged Soul Blues ("That's What Love Will Make You Do"), and pure Memphis soul ("Grits Ain't Groceries (All Around the World)"). Throughout his career, he's proven able to adapt his blues-rooted sensibilities to a variety of settings, without losing that all-important visceral quality.
