04/07/14 Watermelon Slim Sat On The Couch

Bill "Watermelon Slim" Holmans.

What can you say about this man? Bonnie Raitt probably said it best when at a 2009 concert she called Slim a "living blues legend".

Born in Boston, Slim was raised in North Carolina listening to the housekeeper sing John Lee Hooker songs.

Watermelon Slim & The Workers have garnered 17 Blues Music Award nominations including a record-tying six in both 2007 & 2008 and Slim is the only blues artist in history with twelve in two consecutive years.

We talked with Slim and he was on fire, talking about his life, the "journalistic inaccuracies" that accompany him in his life and his continuing dissatisfaction with our government.

YES...we also talked music and listened to songs from Bull Goose Rooster

Vinnie Marini is a fine, dedicated documentarian!! He's got his pulse on the grassroots of this music.
