TBR#378 D is for DIXON

William James ”Willie“ Dixon (July 1, 1915 – January 29, 1992)

When I say the name Willie Dixon what do you think of? Chances are you know who Willie Dixon is or was for the world of Blues, especially Chicago blues. And chances are you know of at least one of his songs if not more, and if you are a performing musician if highly likely you have performed a song written by Willie Dixon. D is for Dixon, Willie Dixon and this episode of the ABCs of Blues pays a wee tribute to him and his awesome contribution to the world of blues. Enjoy!

See what Willie Dixon's grandson is up to these days: http://www.dixonlandingmusic.com/
