He grew up in Sarasota, and has been playing music "longer than I'd like to admit, luckily this makes me somewhat legendary in certain circles", as Slim likes to say.
He toured with Lucky Peterson and earned his "Sarasota Slim" nickname from local legend Rock Bottom.
His latest album is Get Up - Get Down and it will show you that this man should be getting love from other blues-loving areas of the world. It is a great album.
Gene and I talked about his career and the music he is making today as well as the music he will be making in the near future with his friend Nitro, which he calls "real blues".
