Happy Birthday T-Bone Walker!

In 1910, Aaron Thibeaux "T-Bone" Walker was born in Texas.

He is one of the pioneers of blues guitar soloing. He started in jump blues, then to Chicago and Texas blues.

In 2003, Rolling Stone ranked him at #47 on their list of "The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time", was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 1980, and into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.

He's had many standards in his name; but the most famous is the one you probably heard, is "Stormy Monday Blues".

So here it is for you, and have a good one T-Bone!
