When I was a senior in high school, I was a football player, but I realized that I wasn’t going to be able to play football the rest of my life.
At the same time I was getting into all this great blues music. A friend of mine was playing a harmonica. I picked it up and I was in a band immediately. I was in a band three months after I started playing.
A year later, I was playing with all the great old guys. It was crazy. Eddie Taylor, Albert Collins, Pee Wee Crayton, George “Harmonica” Smith, John Lee Hooker even back then a little bit. – Kim
