Remembering the legendary Eddy Clearwater (1935 – 2018). Born in Mississippi, raised in Alabama and entered the blues scene in the early 1950’s Chicago behind Magic Sam before cutting sides for his uncle, Houston Harrington on the small Atomic-H label. During the early 80’s, Eddy would forever be known as the Chief, from the popular title of his Rooster Records Label debut which featured the exciting showman in a Native American headdress and riding a horse. He would continue to impress fans worldwide, releasing 17 albums, being nominated for a Grammy Award and winning a handful of blues music awards.
