9780713718362: Blues: The British Connection

Former Fleetwood Mac member Brunning charts how London shows by US Bluesmen like Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker—then forgotten at home—influenced a generation of British musicians from The Stones and The Animals to The Bluesbreakers and The Yardbirds. This led to huge Stateside 1970s success for blues-influenced British rock giants like Fleetwood Mac and Led Zeppelin and a renaissance of the U.S. blues scene.

"An engaging personal memoir."—Charles Shaar Murray

About the Author:

Bob Brunning was the bass player in an early incarnation of Fleetwood Mac. Since then he has played in a vast array of blues bands, including many line-ups of his own recording and touring Deluxe Blues Band. He is also the author of Blues: The British Connection and Fleetwood Mac: Rumours and Lies

From Publishers Weekly:

Brunning has performed with blues bands since 1967 (when he broke in with Fleetwood Mac and Savoy Brown), which adds both authority and an insider's perspective to this excellent history of British blues. The early style changed after visits to the U.K. during the '50s by Muddy Waters and other Americans. Then came the '60s explosionAlexis Korner's Blues Incorporated, Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton, John Mayall, the Animals, Manfred Mann, the Spencer Davis Group, the Pretty Things and Ten Years After. Brunning traces events to the present, but his best chapters recount the pleasures, miseries and "eternal problems for white bands who worked with visiting American bluesmen." He recalls one conflict: "The only words Jimmy Witherspoon said to me during the three days' residency was when he walked over to me whilst we were on stage and said, 'Tell that f-----g guitar player to turn down, or I'll knock him off the stage.' " Brunning skillfully blends his own memories with those of many other British musicians; the result is an informative, energetic, entertaining, fast-paced survey.
