Today we celebrate the birthdate of Muddy Waters. No one did more to create the Chicago blues scene of the 1950s. In the '60s he influenced a generation of British rock bands, in fact, the Rolling Stones took their name from his song, "The Rollin' Stone". Other enduring favorites from Muddy include "Hoochie Coochie Man", "Mannish Boy" and ""Got My Mojo Working". Leave your favorite blues songs in the comments below and we'll play a set this morning.
