Read full description of the books:
If you know Muddy Waters, you know the blues. If you listen to The Rolling Stones, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, and countless other voices, you get to hear the influence of Muddy Waters. If you read this book, you get to know the life that informed all the Muddy was and what made him an authentic Delta blues man for his lifetime.
We can read about what it meant to be a Southern black and a sharecropper, but through Muddy Waters we get to hear what it meant, how it becomes part of one's bones, and how a man could find freedom through his music. Muddy was illiterate but savvy; he was a man in every sense, just listen to his lyrics. He was also selfless, accepted responsibility for the women he married and those he didn't along with his children, loyal in the music industry often to his own detriment, helpful to other musicians, and fiercely protective of his performances and look. He lived a hard life on the plantation and as a musician. Working hard was what he knew, and he played hard too among an often hard and threatening crowd, especially when he moved to Chicago.
In all things, Muddy Waters is legendary and so is his music. This book is a fascinating and gripping read, taking the reader into the places where Muddy operated, making you feel both climate and vibe. As a fan of the blues and Muddy Waters, I was captivated by the life of this extraordinary man who continues to influence great music in a contemporary world, even if that influence is under the radar.
