Michael Bloomfield


A brilliant, but personally unstable, white bluesman from Chicago, Mike Bloomfield was in the vanguard of the stateside revival of interest in the blues in the late 1960's. Although also a vocalist and occasional composer and songwriter, his most celebrated gift was for playing the guitar in a style that was not quite like anyone else, before or since. He first came to prominence as a session player on Bob Dylan's HIGHWAY 61 REVISITED, and as one of two lead guitar players in the Paul Butterfield Blues Band.
