b. 14 March 1922, Liberty, Mississippi, USA. Guitarist, harmonica participant and vocalist Rodgers, without in the 1st airline flight of blues documenting artists, is obviously one with a unique moniker, that of the Midnight Cowboy. This nickname was presented with to him when he helped to provide a leg, having chanced upon a pregnant cow at night of the rural Mississippi night time. He certainly has a even more colourful previous than most, and can be an amazing raconteur, spinning stories of that time period he wrestled a carry or positioned a rattlesnake in his dad’s bed (after having eliminated its tooth). Typical of several from your genre’s start, Rodgers was pressured to go after the blues like a sideline to even more stable day careers. These included stints as an novice boxer, a truck-driver, hay hauler, natural cotton chopper and, when occasions were very difficult, a poultry thief. Certainly, his first work came like a cotton-picker alongside Bo Diddley. Despite a peripatetic routine, Rodgers were able to show up on many celebrated television programs, like the Gong Present (which he earned twice), Costs Cosby’s WITHOUT A DOUBT YOUR DAILY LIFE and HELLO America. With the past due 80s he was finally in a position to focus even more completely on music, launching a cassette and a Compact disc on Snowflake Information, the label possessed by his friend and musical helper Georgie Ann Waddell.
