Big George Brock Talks About Being "Live At 75"
Here's a brand new January 2008 interview with bluesman Big George Brock. The Mississippi native chats here about his first ever live CD - "Live At 75". George is the real deal when it comes to the blues; he's lived it. From his life as a sharecropper in the Mississippi delta, to being a boxer in the Clarksdale, MI area, to being a club owner in St. Louis (where he booked and played on stage with people like Muddy Waters. Ike Turner, and Howlin' Wolf) - George has been there and done that. George also shares his thoughts on taking the blues to a worldwide audience, how he developed his harmonica playing, and even turning down a record contract with blues label Chess in the 1960's. George was a great guy to talk with - he's truly one of the great unsung performers in blues today. Check out George online at www.cathead.biz/BigGeorge.html.
