Rolling Fork to Bromley

When Blues musicians arrived in London in the early 60s, their first booking was often at the Bromley Court Hotel, Catford; a short bus ride from my home. This gig was a 'warm-up' for their appearance at the Marquee Club in Oxford Street. Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Howlin’ Wolf and Bo Diddley appeared at the Court with British stars such as John Mayall, Alexis Corner and Spencer Davis. With his pencil moustache, Telecaster, sharp suits and from Rolling Fork, Mississippi - Muddy Waters “Got my Mojo Working”.  Read more about all this at 'Left Field.'
