Throwback: Happy 109th Birthday, Muddy Waters!

It’s Aries season, y’all! And the month or so of the astrological sign is busy and auspicious for music history:

The legendary bluesman Muddy Waters was born on this date 109 years ago today. Largely considered the father of modern Chicago blues, Waters’ work has had a towering influence on rock — and that shouldn’t be surprising at all. So today let’s celebrate the man and his legendary work.

Happy birthday, sir! Happy birthday, wherever you are!
