STUDEBAKER JOHN @ Pop’s Place, Decatur, IL

As a teenager, John Grimaldi worked in the family plumbing business that sometimes took him to Chicago’s Maxwell Street open-air market. There he saw musicians playing raw, amplified blues. After seeing Hound Dog Taylor perform, John knew he had to play slide guitar. Under the spell of these music experiences he started performing as Studebaker John in the `70s. His harp is greasy and hot, his slide cuts like a knife and his vocals are truly inspired
