Why Jimmy Reed?

Jimmy Reed (born in Mississippi, September 6,1925 – August 29, 1976) was famous for electrifying his style of blues. Many great rock and roll legends, such as Jerry Garcia and the Rolling Stones, cite Jimmy as a major influence. He is most well known for the popular tune “Bright Lights, Big City,” which is still in the popular repertoire today. This video is from just months before he died.

    He ranks higher, due to “coolness” if for no other reason. Not a harmonica virtuoso, but he invented playing the high end of the harp in 1st position “so he could hear himself” as the story goes. A harmonica icon if there is one.
