Mean Old Frisco

Marion Walter Jacobs also known as Little Walter couldn’t have sung today any better. I’m not sure if he’s referring to San Francisco or a dude name Frisco tho. Either way, he’s hands-down one of the best harmonica players (I know of) and played background Harmonica for Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf. He tragically died at the tender age of 37-years-old, one month ago in 1968. This one’s for you, baby.

    Charlie Musselwhite was mentored by Little Walter.

    “Some people say the blues is sad but I don’t think so. In the bible Jesus says I’m going to send you a comforter. For me the blues is a comforter.”
