Wikipedia : This day (January 15, 1998), in Chicago, Illinois, died Amos Wells Blakemore Jr. a.k.a. Junior Wells, an American Chicago blues vocalist and harmonica player..
@The BluesHarp : He was one bad dude, strutting across the stage like a harp-toting gangster, mesmerizing the crowd with his tough-guy antics and rib-sticking Chicago blues attack.
Delmark Records : I later heard the Muddy Waters band on a trip to Chicago, at the Club Zanzibar c.1957 and was perturbed that Little Walter had left and a new guy had taken his place but when I requested Key To The Highway and Muddy said, I think Junior Wells does that better than I do, Junior certainly cut Walter in the vocal department.
@last.fm : He later worked with Buddy Guy in the 1960s and recorded for Delmark Records. His most memorable songs are “Messin’ With the Kid” and “Little by Little,” and his best-known album, 1965’s Hoodoo Man Blues
