Happy Birthday to….
Paul Butterfield – Born 17 Dec 1942 in Chicago, IL
Paul Rogers – Born 17 Dec 1949 in Middlesbrough, UK

This YouTube clip features Paul Butterfield who was a huge influence on a generation of US bluesmen who began to play in the 1960s. In the same way that the Clapton and Mayall influenced the Brits then Butterfield influenced the Merkins. Butter had a great tone and unusually he was not a tongueblocker when he played the harp; he was a puckerer.
I still enjoy very much the Paul Butterfield’s Better Days CDs from the 1970s.
