Thanks Jim!

Whenever I hear "Cross-Note" I always think of Skip.

I guess that means I have to come up with one, huh? Ok, hang tight...I'll be back.

Sorry for the delay.

Ok...

Contrary to popular belief, this guy was born in 1951 in Canton, Mississippi and raised in Jackson, Mississippi before his family moved to the area of the United States that is more widely known as his home.

Though not strictly a blues artist, his playing is certainly "bluesy". He's really become a huge innovator in the style of guitar he plays. Amazing to watch.

Although he's successful doing his own thing, he's taken a lot of jobs as guest artist. In 1990 he appeared on two cuts on a Tanita Tikaram album, and more recently you could say he's a "Goner".

For all the marbles, who is this guy?

Extra Special Bonus Award if you can name the two Tanita Tikaram songs. (certainly not necessary for the win)

The marbles should come in handy- I lost mine a while ago.

One of my hobby-horses is the collection of “rip-offs” – songs presented as original but really based on and re-named (and usually not crediting) previously released originals.
This was blatant in the 70’s by famous rock/blues bands.
Examples include:
“Bull Doze Blues” By Henry Thomas which resurfaced as “Going Up The Country” by Canned Heat.
Below are the original songs and artist, name the “reworked” numbers and the associated band.

“Big Road Blues” Big Maceo
“You Need Love” Muddy Waters
“Killing Floor Blues” Howlin’ Wolf

There are many more examples. What are your favourites? (Should maybe be another thread on Talking Blues)

Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" and "The Lemon Song."
Wasn't "Big Road Blues" reworked as "Travelin' Blues"?

Canned Heat (again!)supposedly based their hit "On The Road Again"
on Big Mac's Big Road Blues.
Otherwise spot on and close enough.
Take it away Jim.

Well don't be sad, cause 2 out of 3 ain't bad, right?
This harp player had a habit of making up stories, he told a reporter a tale about how Robert Johnson died in his arms in the rain.. how dramatic.. He also planned to move to England in his later years, but died before going there permanently.
So who am I talking about?

Sounds sufficiently dramatic to be Sonny Boy II. But I'm usually wrong.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON Feb-10-06 AT 10:17 AM (EST)]Oh bugger.... now I've got to come up with one.

OK,Piano player buried in Chicago, with a recent headstone paid for by Britain's leading R'n'B orchestra leader. He had a sporting connection with the area.
