Me? I'm never mean - obtuse, yes, but mean, no. :lol:

OK.....
Blues ivory-tinkler, born in Mississippi (aren't they all?) in the very early 20th century, who after a short sojourn in Memphis, went up to join all the other Mississipian bluesers in Chicago, where he graced the blues scene for over half a century.
His stage nickname came from the title of one of his best-known songs, about a rail accident which killed a number of track-crossers.
He is also known to be the person that introduced a certain McKinley Morganfield to the Chess family.
He also had a very individual laugh.

What 1950's guitar instrumental was innovative in its pioneering use of feedback and reverb?
