The Killing Floor

Joe Bonamassa

"The blues are the roots; everything else is the fruits." Willie Dixon.

Hi, I am Dexter and this is my spot. I have a Greg Bennett Interceptor guitar, and a Fender Princeton 650 amp. This is a great site with some really talented members. I am humbled to be a part of this community.

History:

I like a wide array of music. The blues are my heart. I like the old rural country blues from days gone by, to the Chicago electric and rock blues of the present. My roots go back to the time of the great negro migration from the southern states to Chicago on account of poor work conditions and failed cotton crops along the Mississippi river due to flooding. My grandfather moved his family to Chicago where I was born. My roots are deeply connected to the blues. My favorite Blues web-site is www.yearoftheblues.org check it out.
