Jimmy Rogers

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor Jimmy rogersJimmy Rogers (June 3, 1924 – December 19, 1997) was a Chicago blues singer, guitarist and harmonica player, best known for his work as a member of Muddy Waters‘ band of the 1950s. He also had solo hits on the R&B chart with “That’s All Right” in 1950 and “Walking By Myself” in 1954. He withdrew from the music industry at the end of the 1950s, only returning to recording and touring in the 1970s.  Jimmy Rogers was born James A. Lane in Ruleville, Mississippi on June 3, 1924 and was raised in Atlanta and Memphis. He adapted the professional surname ‘Rogers’ from his stepfather’s last name. Rogers learned the harmonica alongside his childhood friend Snooky Pryor, and as a teenager took up the guitar and played professionally in East St. Louis, Illinois, where he played with Robert Lockwood, Jr. among others, before moving to Chicago in the mid-1940s.[citation needed] By 1946, Rogers had recorded as a harmonica player and singer for the Harlem record label run by J. Mayo Williams. Rogers’ name did not appear on the record, which was mislabeled as the work of “Memphis Slim and his Houserockers.”
