More About Guitar Slim:
Slim told Axel Kustner when he visited his home what the blues was all about. “Blues will be popular as long as the world stands. It’ll take away any other musician you may come up with. Them Ol’ Blues is just a natural born killer and they always have been, cause they come from slavery on up, you understand?”
James “Guitar Slim” Stephens passed away in 1989.
