Sixteenth music history lesson, courtesy of italian magazine Il Mucchio and its old Classic Rock special features (published in Italy in the 1990s/2000s). After Punk, New Wave, Dark/Gothic, Hard Rock, Psychedelia, Power Pop, Canterbury, Reggae, Krautrock, White Man's Blues, Hardcore-Punk, Old Skool Hip-Hop, Soul, italian Cantautori and californian Harmony Pop, it's time to go back at the crossroads where blues was born. From Robert Johnson to Leadbelly, from Muddy Waters to John Lee Hooker, from Howlin' Wolf to Lightin' Hopkins, all the masters are here. Enjoy! :o)
