John “Shortstuff” Macon

b. 1923, Crawford, Mississippi, USA, d. 28 Dec 1973, Macon, Mississippi, USA. Within the middle-60s, Macon was brought briefly to open public interest by his cousin Big Joe Williams. Although twenty years youthful than Williams, he performed an amazingly archaic design of blues, offering basic, insistently rhythmic electric guitar, frequently without chord adjustments, and mode loaded vocals that frequently recalled the field holler. Following the trip north with Williams that led to his too little recordings, Macon came back house to undeserved obscurity until his loss of life.
