Long John Hunter
BiographyInspired by a 1953 B.B. King performance, Long John Hunter bought himself a guitar and embarked on a career in Texas Blues that only in the past few years has managed to generate national attention. With a slashing, precise lead style that belies his level of recognition, Hunter has remained in semi-obscurity, fashioning a fervent cult following out of the sweltering environs of his El Paso home. His gutsy vocals and full-on blues power attack came to vinyl fruition in 1996 with Border Town Legend, generally considered one of the high points of the Modern Blues era.
