Mr. J.W. Williams, the Chicago Blues Hall of Fame inductee JW ウィリアムス氏が殿堂入り


Today J.W. Williams, the former bass player for Buddy Guy and Junior Wells, was inducted to the Chicago Blues Hall of Fame in the “Legends” category.  It is the highest honor among the inductees.   

今日、JW ウィリアムス氏 (元バディ・ガイやジュニア・ウェルズのベーシスト) がシカゴブルース殿堂入りをした。最も権威のある“レジェンド”のカテゴリーで。 


It also includes the late greats Eddie Taylor Sr., Louis Myers, Fred Below Jr., Oddie Payne Sr. I grew up listening to the music of these big names while I was in Japan decades ago. 



In the picture, J.W. is making his acceptance speech during the award ceremony at Buddy Guy’s Legends in Chicago. Standing aside is his wife Janet. 



It is my supreme honor to be currently in JW Williams’ band called the Chi-Town Hustlers as his guitar player. It is an once in lifetime opportunity for me. 



Congratulations Mr. J.W.!!
