EDDY CLEARWATER INDUCTED INTO
THE BLUES HALL OF FAME CLASS OF 2016

Eddy The Chief Clearwater
Eddy The Chief Clearwater Eddy The Chief ClearwaterTHE CHIEF..... Jim O’Neal founder of Rooster Records and Living Blues Magazine and one of the key people responsible for the nickname, “The Chief” will introduce Eddy at the Blues Hall of Fame induction in Memphis on May 4th.

Eddy earned his nickname, “The Chief”, from the title of his first American LP on Rooster Blues when he posed for the cover on horseback in an Indian headdress (a gift from a fan). Already playing one of the busiest nightclub schedules of any Chicago bluesman, Clearwater ramped up his road work and rocked the blues harder than ever. More albums for Rooster Blues, Blind Pig, Bullseye Blues, and his own Cleartone imprint followed, along with assorted European releases, leading to widely acclaimed releases for Bullseye Blues (Rock “n” Roll City, with Los Straitjackets) and Alligator (West Side Strut) as well as his own label Cleartone Records which his newest release, “Soul Funky” Live is on. Still strutting his stuff in his war bonnet, Eddy Clearwater adds to a proud legacy every time he steps onstage or into a recording studio.

The youngest member of the Blues cartel, Jamiah Rogers who was so honored to be on stage with the blues master, Eddy Clearwater. ‘I’m so honored to be a part of this concert and to play on the same stage with ‘The Chief’. I’m almost 21 years old so maybe this year I can actually get on stage with him at Buddy Guy’s Legends and play a song,” said Jamiah. “He reminds me of me when I was a kid said Eddy. He is a fine musician and he has style and class like the bluesmen of my day did,” said Eddy.

  BB - Our Whole Blues Community Misses You

 
REMEMBERING BB KING
“BB was so amazed when he saw me get up on stage and play with Muddy Waters. BB came up on stage to play with us and he gazed at me and then asked me..... how do you play that left handed and upside down’ —That evening was one of the greatest moments of my life playing with my two mentors and guitar heroes. They both told me, just keep on practicing and remember to always be humble and give your all to the audience. I have carried that philosophy with me all of my life and I thank them from the bottom of my heart.”
—Eddy
