Bill Blue has been writing music and performing for almost 50 years. He is a true "Bluesman" and is loved and revered by his fans and fellow performers in Key West. Many of the photos in this gallery are of Bill with his friends, fans, and fellow musicians. My favorite is photo # 35 and #36. Caffienne Carl Wagoner had tears in his eyes while he hugged his mentor Bill Blue.
Mojolation is the first new CD release is over 20 years and by his own words "my best work". Bill Blue and I discussed photographs for the CD for over 6 months. We shot at four different locations, three shoots, and selected the CD cover from over 500 photos. We finally selected the shot of Bill in front of Bill Wegman's portrait of the old Bluesman Robert Johnson fittingly located at the Green Parrot.
Its a great CD with fantastic music by a really great performer. Get your copy of Mojolation and you won't be disappointed.
