Transcript: Transcript Muddy Waters’ eldest son Mud Morganfield


Hi, and thanks for joining me today. If you’re a music fan, and let’s face it, you must be, otherwise you wouldn’t be here right now, then the name Muddy Waters is going to be really well known to you. Muddy was the king of the Chicago blues. You could say he electrified the blues, both literally and figuratively. His playing was revelatory, his singing unrivaled. He was responsible for influencing musicians of all genres and inspired icons like the Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton to take up rock’s legacy.

Muddy Waters passed away in 1983 and passed the baton to his eldest son, Mud Morgan Field. Mud was born Larry Williams in 1954 and bears a striking resemblance to his father, both vocally and physically. His timbre and tone are eerily similar, and he shares the same perfect blues phrasing. Mud was a late bloomer who, although grew up around music, didn’t begin his own professional career until after his father’s death, and he was nearly 30.

Mud’s songs consist of a mix of original tunes, his father’s favorites, and blues standards. I caught up with him on the occasion of his latest release called Portrait, but how could I chat to this man without asking him all about his famous dad?


Morganfield. Welcome to a breath of fresh air. What a joy to meet you and talk about your music. I’ve been a longtime fan of your late father, who, of course, was the great Muddy Waters. You’re his eldest son, right?

Yes, I’m the first one.

So I know from having read a little bit about you and about him that he was always on the road. At the height of his career, when he started having children, he wasn’t around much, was he?

No, he wasn’t. He stayed on the road. I mean, he was always wire money home to take care of us, but dad stayed on the road. Then when he did come home, he was so wore out, he would sleep, like, three days.

Do you remember the feelings that you had as a child around that?

I really didn’t, because I really didn’t understand the significant that dad played, and blues, especially Chicago. I had no idea. I mean, I was into Motown and other stuff.

So you didn’t understand the music that he was making. But what about the fact that he was an absent father? How did that affect you?

It affects me immensely, but my mom had seven brothers who kind of took up the slack for dad. And my mom was a fantastic mom also, so it was okay.

And when was it that you realized what your dad was doing and just how popular he was?

I think I was in high school, and I got into some trouble in high school, and they called my dad, and he came up there, and I was noticing how I studied all the teachers and the principal would, and I was like, It’s just dad. And Guy hit me there that he was somebody well known.

The gypsy woman told my mother before I was born I got a boy charge coming gonna be a son of a gun they gonna make pretty women’s jump and shout then they would want to know what this all about? Everybody knows your name everybody knows I got a black cat phone I got a mojo too I got the John the Conqueror I’m going to mess with you. I’m going to make you girls leading it by my hand then the world I know Jamaica.

Everybody knows what all the hoochie could you make everybody know.

What did you feel about that?

I loved it, but I still had to get my blues, too. Right.

So was it difficult for you? You say that you were already into making music yourself and you were already into the blues. Was it the same kind of blues that he was doing?

You know, I really don’t know. I’d say there’s a lot of interviews. I think I was tapping on my mother’s stomach inside of her. I came here with the bruise. I was born to bruise, really. Notes ran through my head at such an early age. I got sconed so many times for beating on furniture, patting on stuff, and I finally went got me a big larkin. I mean huge. And I started playing that. That’s before dad started to buy me a set of drums every year for Christmas.

He wanted you to play the drums?

No, I did. I started off as a drummer, so now I don’t play bass professionally, but I play bass, so that’s my instrument of choice.

Now, what attracted you to the drums in the first place?

I just thought it was the beat. It was the rhythm. It’s the bottom. I was attracted to making people move. If you ain’t got a funky drum beat, you ain’t got it.

If you got a bad drummer, you.

Might as well forget it because the band gonna sound bad. If you don’t have a good drummer, just forget it.

It’s interesting, isn’t it? Because the drummer gets paid very little attention, generally speaking. I mean, I’m sure the band members.

Now, when I come up there was the James Brown thing, did a drummer song, and all the women was over the drum. So I was right where I needed to be.

Wow, I feel good I knew that I wouldn’t I feel good I knew that I wouldn’t so good so good I got a year wow, I feel nice a sugar respond I got to you.

What about the fact that so many groups started using the drum machines to replace drummers with? What do you think about that?

Not traditional blues. Not not Chicago blues. No, that’s rock and different stuff, but not blues. You got to have a blues drum, you got to have a blues pianoist. That’s the blues.

So what is it about the Chicago blues that had you already as a baby? You had it in your DNA. What is it about that style of music that really grabs you?

To be honest with you, it just wasn’t the blues. It’s music, period. The agenda you have is music, period. If dad had been a painter, I’d have been a painter. If you had been a carpenter, I’d have been a carpenter. Boys marked the dad, girls marked the Moms. But for me, it was just music. It’s generations and generations of music that I was just fortunate enough that I got some of it in me. So I’m proud of that.

Did he teach you a lot?

Dad didn’t teach me anything. He taught me when he shared with my mom, with me. I come here. I come here with this music round. I couldn’t get with it. I couldn’t get rid of I ran and I ran, I ran. And these beats are always in my head. I would lay down with the beard at night and I would pat on the mattress.

But as you grew up and he was still around for some time, I mean, albeit that he was on the road most of the time, did he encourage you in your music?

Oh, yeah. I’ve had smaller garage bands and house bands and whatever I needed and equipment. He would always call up his manager and tell him, hey, my son come out here. And I was like a kid in the candy store. Right.

Just won’t work on you got my mojo waking but just won’t wake on you I wanna love you so bad I don’t know what to do. Going down and lose an or to get me a motor I’m gonna have all you women that show the mouth got my boat over got my boat over got my boat over again god, my boo. Got my bojo wacky. But careful with you.

Dad was happy that you’d chosen music as your career path.

Yeah, any of us, really.

But you did you didn’t start out as a professional musician, did you? Mud you. I read that you actually drove a bus for a while.

I’ve not drove trucks.

Oh, you drove a truck?

Like I said, I’ve always had music. But my belief, this is just my belief, you don’t wake up one morning and go outside and get no blues. You got to go through some alcoholism or coverage, something counsel. You just don’t go outside and get the blues. Everybody that play the blues don’t mean they got the blues. They just know how to play it.

You got to get some so you’ve really got to live it before you can share.

Absolutely. There you go. Absolutely.

So what did you go through that really gave you that Chicago blues flavor.

Oh, God. It took me all day to tell you what I went through on the West Side of Chicago.

It was a pretty rough neighborhood.

Sure, I had to fight every day. Sure ain’t cared about me being BB. King son? Or Muddy Water son? Or Little Walter son? They didn’t care. I had to establish my own self. Absolutely.

Were you picked on or that was just everyone was fighting?

Pretty much. You got ran over. I come up in that kind of time. I come in a time when Martin Luther King was assassinated. So, you know, it’s rough. I’m in the blizzard of 68 69 we didn’t have food in the house. And me and my mom and my other sibling, we had to carpool, get through the snow, to go out in areas and find bread to break on.

Me to start writing songwriting about times like that?

Well, yeah. We go to certain store markets and see what they had a lot of shelves empty because the Trust couldn’t get in and deliver food. So it’s pretty rough times. I’ve got some blues.

You paid your dues, right? Did you start writing songs about those times?

Most of my songs are about women relationships. I’ve had that feel. Songs succeeded. Most of my songs are like that. I’m not good with the kind of blues that make you ling over your food and cry all the time because your lover love you. I like people to get up and dance and have a great time. If you lose that stuff for half an hour, an hour, that’s fine for me.

Have you ever been walking walking down that on Lofty Road? No place to go well, Brown no place to room and bowl things look so loud down that road ahead looks so dark down that road ahead of the way you’re living be well, boys. And what your mother said when you.

Were growing up and you discovered how famous your dad was, did you start appreciating the music that he was making?

You know what? In order for you to get some Bruise, I had to go out and get some Bruise. So I had to go out into my environment where I was born and raised there and experienced a lot of things failure, some success, more failures than success. But I had to go out and experience some things in order for me to have some blues because I’d have just been had I did it any other kind of way just because my dad was Muddy Waters, I’d have been faking it wouldn’t have been real had my own story.

Yeah, I hear you. But did you study his music at all? Did you really go through his catalog and analyze it or you kind of put that aside and went and did your own thing?

People think I made a deal.

I don’t want you to be no slave I don’t want you to wake all day I don’t want you to be true I just want to make love I don’t want you wash my clothes I don’t want you keep on hold I don’t want your money too I just want to make the love.

I’ve never looked at clips. You know, the only thing I do if I’m if I’m going to record a song for my dad, like on Delma Ruckus, but I’m on now, is have somebody put that song in front of me in the studio, in the booth, and I’ll just sing that song. I don’t look at clips of dad. How you move, how you walk. I mean, that is so phony. That is so phony.

You can’t make this stuff up, and Mud certainly doesn’t. He put out his first album in 2008, his second in 2012, the third in 2018, and the latest one in 2022. Each is a great listen. Don’t go anywhere. Mud’s got plenty more to say.

This is a breath of fresh air with Sandy K. It’s a beautiful day. Great.

You’re still here with me. I’m chatting with Muddy Water’s eldest son, Mud Morganfield, and I just can’t believe he’s followed in his father’s footsteps without ever having listened to his music.

You must have heard what he was doing once he started to get an appreciation for that catalog no.

That catalog. No, really? No. Real slick. I heard people talk about I don’t even know how to go. I have to listen to it and try to sing it. No.

How amazing.

Wow. That’s a surprise. It’s been said of you that not only do you resemble him, but the tone and the timbre of your voice is very much the same as Muddy Waters. You sound like him. Your phrasing is the same. And that’s just happened naturally. That’s just part of who you are.

And that’s why I praise God and I thank my dad and my mom for me.

I love all the tracks that you put out today. Do you have a favorite one?

Well, I am really ecstatic about the single Praise Him because I’ve lived over 60 years and God been good to me and I had to get that testimony out. And that’s my first single gospel bluesy kind of song. But it’s definitely a message in it.

What’s the message? What are you talking about in there?

Talking about me.

Go on, tell us more.

I’m talking about me. Listen to it. It’s a testimony. I’m talking about me. I woke up in the morning and I couldn’t see I couldn’t see the forest out beyond the trees come up I was blinded by flashy things and other stuff I couldn’t see I thought I woke myself up I thought I was my own God. I thought I woke myself up. How silly is that now? But it’s a testimony. Listen to it. It pretty much tell.

You woke up one morning and I couldn’t see. I couldn’t see the forest out beyond the trees. Then a boy said to me I’m gonna set you free. And all I ask of you you tell the people about me. And I’m gonna praise Amazon. I’m gonna praise him. Let me praise him for saving me. For saving me. I must have been out of my mind told myself I woke me every time same force said to me so I take a knee I’m going to tell you something that might set you free.

I’m gonna praise them. I’m gonna praise y’all. Let me praise them for saving me.

How did you get to that point of writing that testimony?

I’m a blues man suffering I’m a blues man same way dad NIM got it from from the south picking cotton and living in huts.

Muddy Waters was born McKinley Morgan Field in Rolling Fork, Mississippi in 1915. His mother died when he was just three years old and from then on he was raised on a plantation in Clarksdale, Mississippi by his grandmother.

He continued writing about all that stuff all through his life, didn’t he?

Oh, you’re a woman.

We’Re always a good vehicle to cause men to say.

In the movie she Ray Child he feels a wrist detailed the woman was large blues man blues man is something.

That you’re born with you can’t develop into a blues man. You’ve either got it or you haven’t.

You said a mouthful. We are born, you’re born with it. And I tell a lot of my young up and coming artists that you don’t need no substance to make you sound better. It’s a lot. You either got it or you don’t.

And how would anybody know if they have got it?

You know you love my songs, right?


Son of a seven song baby, you know it’s true. This hoochie kuchi man it’s going to food do you? I’m a nacho bone lover a real backdoor main. Don’t you know this manish boy has grown up to be a man I’m the one I’m the son of seven songs the I’m gonna beat down the devil I breathe smoking fire I’ll come back from the dead girl just to say your mind wonders are you see the men? The men, they just don’t know it but the little girl, they understand.

When I say that I’m a man you better believe that I’m the main I’m the one I’m a son of.

A seven song mike dedicated the album Son of a 7th Son to his dad, who had first been introduced to music in the church. The album won rave reviews from critics across the globe and created the opportunity for him to tour the US and Europe with his own band. Mud toured incessantly for a couple of years before reentering the studio to record four Pops, a tribute to Muddy Waters with harmonicist singer and songwriter Kim Wilson who’d been with the famous Thunderbirds.

In 2015, that album won a blues music award for the best traditional blues album.

How does it feel to be compared to him? Is that a good thing for you or a bit of a double edge?

It’s ass four. It swings both ways. I could be in London in a big club, and I could be doing some of my stuff and people, hey, Doochi Kuchi, man do mojo. So it’s ass one some people I heard Muddy Waters, but I think that people who didn’t get a chance to see my dad ever alive think that I can give them a taste of what that may have been like and at the same time honor my dad. We can’t beat it.

Do you do those songs of his sometimes on stage?

Yeah. Half of my show mostly is his songs, but when I record, I only record a song with ads or two within the rest of my written song that I wrote.

Mud Morgan Field is the eldest son of Muddy Waters. I’m chatting with here. Mud, in 2015, you did a tribute album for your dad. It was called for Pops. A tribute to Muddy Waters. That one actually won a Blues Music Award in the traditional blues album category. You must have been pretty proud of that.

You know what, I’m always proud of stuff that there’s only one Muddy Waters. Let’s just skip that straight. But I’m always proud to respect and honor my dad.

You say you lose me, darling please call me on the phone sometime.

Muddy was, you know, was great. I mean, he he changed the face of the blues with the electro. I mean, he was not obviously the first person to do electric blues, but he really created a genre, the Chicago electric blues scene. He was the contemporary of Sunhouse and Patton, two decades removed.


You were actually born Larry Williams and Muddy’s real name was McKinley Morganfield. How did Muddy get Muddy Waters? And how did you get mud? Morganfield?

No, you know the story. My grandmother used to catch dad all the time in Mississippi when he wasn’t in the cotton field playing in Mud. So that’s how he got the name Muddy Waters. He would always love to play in Mud and do his fingers and stuff. Great grandmother named him Muddy Waters.

The name Muddy stuck and the Waters was apparently tacked on. A few years later during the rural south where Muddy was growing up was a hotbed for the blues and young Muddy became entranced with the music when he discovered a neighbor had a record player and records from the likes of Blind Lemon, Jefferson, Lonnie Johnson and Tampa Red. In his early teens, Muddy was introduced to the sound of the Delta blues artists, including Robert Johnson.

Baby, don’t you want to go oh, baby, all too long to go back to land of California my sweet home name chicago.

Their music inspired him to switch instruments. He bought a guitar and learnt to play it in the bottleneck style.

When did you take the name Mud?

I took the name in my career because I wanted people to know that I was Smuddy’s eldest son. And I took the first three letters of his name, Mud. And Morganfield is my birthright name. Williams is my mother’s nickname. But Wardenfield is my dad’s.

What about your other siblings? Did they also follow in his footsteps?

But my brother, my younger brother, Bigfield Wardenfield, he does dad he does his things too.

Crazy. His drizzle tight. Go crazy. We’ll dress all tight, do all of these bit, try to run out. Big me, woman down. Why do all of these men try to run out? Big, big woman down.

Big Bill Morganfield with the same thing.

My younger brother, Joseph Morganfield, just passed a couple years ago.


Young man, 40 some years old. Just fall, dear. It was really a tragedy to the whole family.

Any of the girls?

You know what? No, none of the girls.

Mud has ten children.

I got two daughters that sing, but they only sing gospel. But I got five boys can’t sing Happy Birthday. I got two girls that make the hell on your back. Stand up. But they only sing gospel. And I got five boys who don’t sing at all, don’t play an instrument. They more listen to this rap stuff.

I hear you. You didn’t really consider becoming a professional blues musician until after Muddy died in 1983, did you? What was it about his death that really turned 83?

He passed in 83.

Did I say 93? Sorry? His death in 83. What was it that turned you?

Because I had to get some blues. There’s some big shoes to follow.

Mud tells me that he kept having a recurring dream about Muddy performing on stage, and that’s what really prompted him to begin performing the blues professionally.

It’s only one BB.


It’s only going to be one Muddy Waters. So there were some big shoes to fill. Then I had to go get my own blues, and that’s what I did.

Yeah, you certainly got the blues. Do you still have to keep accumulating blues? How much is enough? How much suffering do you need to have? Or, if you’re a living bluesman, do you need to keep it coming?

It’s not all suffering. It’s not all suffering. Sometimes it’s happy stuff. It’s just stuff that people live, do what we do.

When you said you got to go out and get some blues, actually, what you’re saying is you got to go out and get some life.

Yes, I went out and got it, like I said. I don’t know if you’re familiar with Chicago. It’s a rough place. Beautiful city, great city. But it’s still a rough place for an African American young man.

Still rough today?

It’s worse, to be honest with you. Yes. Way worse than when I come up. When I come up rough. Two guys could not get along they fight me best friends tomorrow now there’s murder for light disputes, disputes he got my girlfriend. And that’s because there are so many guns just flooding the city. And they in young people hand. They legalize smoking marijuana. So almost everybody in Chicago was riding around drunk.

You know they drunk. Not even just a young old suit. They all drunk. They’ve been smoking weed all day long. And they driving out there in the traffic, and they got guns in their cars.

It’s a bad combination, isn’t it?

I’m sorry. I’m just let you just what I told you, gave you the blues.

It did.

It really brought me down.

You’re right, what I said to you.

It gave you some blues.

If you don’t think I got the blue I wish you could have walked in my shoes if you don’t think I got the blues I wish you could have walked in my shoes I’ve had the blue so long I don’t know just what to do it started in September 1954. It started in September 1954. That’s when the doctors told my mother, you got it yourself, Mr. Gucci. Boy.

That track was Blues in My Shoes from Mug Morganfield. We’ll be right back with more.

This is a breath of fresh air with Sandy K. It’s a beautiful day.

Welcome back. As we’ve been hearing, Mud Morganfield is all about paying tribute to his dad, Muddy Waters. It seems that everything he records is in honor of him. Muddy was always out on the road scoring hits with songs like Roland and Tumblr. I’m ready and manage, boy.

Now, when I was a young boy, at the age of five, my mother south gonna be the greatest lane of life. But now I’m a man way past 21. I want you to leave. Me, baby, I have lots of fun I’m a man I spell him H in that rubber band main child why, that means vanish, boy. I’m a man I’m a full blown man I’m a natural bone lovers man I’m a man, I’m a rolling stone I’m a man, I’m a hoochie kuchi man sitting on outside just being my mate y’all know I made to moon honey come up to I always live one down a man I spell him.

H-I-N that rabbit and main Nobe. Whoa, child. Why, that means Boy, me vanish.

Boy is a blues standard written by Muddy Waters, mel, London and Beau didley. Although the song contains sexual boasting, its repetition of I’m A Man was understood as political. Jimi Hendrix and the Rolling Stones both covered it.

The latest album that you have out is called Portrait, but it’s actually been remixed and remastered from one that you had out previously. Tell me the story around Del Mar bringing that back out again.

They saw something that was missed. And we added a few songs that we did in the studio, along with the very new gospel single, Praise.

Woke up one morning and I couldn’t see I couldn’t see the forest out beyond the trees. Then a boy said to me, I’m gonna set you free. And all I asked of you you tell the people about me. And I’m gonna praise him. I’m gonna praise him. Let me praise him for saving me. For saving me. I must have been out of my mind told myself I woke me every time for said to me. So I take a knee. I’m going to tell you something that might set you free.

And I’m gonna praise him. I’m gonna praise y’all. Let me praise him for saving me.

It’s an awesome track. Praise him I also really like the version that you do of that classic Good Morning, Little Schoolgirl. Why’d you choose to do that one?

No, it’s respect from the dad. He recorded that song. I don’t think he owned it, but he recorded it. And I did it out of respect for dad when no one’s going to ever forget it. But that was my way of honoring my father.

How do you feel when you’re playing to an audience or recording his songs?

To do the best I can do?

You think he would have been happy?

No doubt about it. I remember him trying to teach my younger brother how to play Good turn. And one thing about music, you can’t force it. Our kids have to do it. They have to want this. And my younger brother Joseph, he was actually a pro. He could have been a pro basketball player. His game was basketball. But dad wanted someone to carry it on the legacy, sort of like and he was the baby boy. He tried to push the guitar in his hand.

Of course, he had it for a day. He put it down, he went, shot some hoops.

How did dad have some time to do that if he was so busy still, right up until his death? How did he find the time?

Joe was the baby boy. So he was in the house, and dad was trying to get Joe and show him a few chords, how to play. But that wasn’t Joe Forte.

A good morning of school girl good morning. Can I go home with y’all? Can I go home with y’all? Tell your mother and your father. Honey, I once was a school boy.


Come on and be my baby come on and be my baby I’ll buy you a diamond I’ll buy you a dime monroe if you don’t be my sunshine honey, I ain’t going by you a dog I ain’t going by nothing. Bob.

Good morning.

Little Schoolgirl was another blues standard. Recorded first by prewar Chicago vocalist and harmonica pioneer john Lee sunny Boy Williamson. In 1937, it became staple diet for both Chicago bluesmen and British blues bands. In the it’s even been called the first rock and roll record. But back to mud. Morgan field now. Muddy’s Eldest. Son.

Do you have a favorite song on portrait?

Locomotive it’s listen to the solo that Bad House Chuck Do, but listen to that solo. Fantastic. Listen to Billy Flynn on guitar. Great. Great musicians.

Hello, Kimono pokemon stay sting stay. Going back down to New Orleans I’m gonna find me I’m gonna find me a queen I’m gonna get on a train and go down to New Orleans Okomoto, stop the train. Not chances, but New Orleans I’m gonna find me I’m gonna find me a plane with long black hair and no underWell.

If you look at my record, there’s never an album that I’m going to put out and not have at least one of dad songs my way. So I’m gonna always put one or two of Dad’s songs on there along with my own stuff.

Which one of his songs do you like best?

Same Thing. Why do men go crazy on a woman? Why dress so sharp? Same Thing is one of my favorites.

Love it.

It is so melodic. I do it sometime on stage. It is such a sexy song, I think.

What? Big men go crazy when I woman wow let’s go tight why do men go crazy when I woman wow let’s go to must be the same thing that makes our tone cat fight all night why do all of these men try roll a big lamb and down why do all of these men try big lady, woman down? Must be the same old thing that makes a bulldog hookah that was the.

Same thing from Muddy Waters, circa 1964. The song came after a period when Muddy’s career had slumped. The rise of rock and roll had taken the spotlight away from traditional blues acts until British fans managed to reinvigorate interest in the genre and it went through something of a creative rebirth. As such, there was a renewed interest in Muddy’s music. He dazzled fans at the band’s farewell concert in 1976 and found himself touring again, sharing stages with the likes of Eric Clapton and the Rolling Stones.

Muddy subsequently joined the Stones at the Checkerboard Lounge in Chicago in 1981 to perform this one. Baby, please don’t go.

Please don’t go please don’t go a baby please don’t go down and you only before I be your dog before I be your dog before I be your dog I get your weed out here. And I make the walk turn your lamb down low turn your lamp download your night long baby please don’t come inside.

Um’S health began to fail him the following year. He died quietly at his home in Westmond, Illinois, on April 30, 1983, when he passed away.

How did that affect you all?

I missed it. When I got the call from his wife, I was just like, no, he did not. And she was talking to me on the phone as the paramedics was working on him.

What were the circumstances around his passing?

Well, he had a heart attack. That’s all we know. He had been having some chest pain, but like most people, we ignore that. We chalk it up as being gas. Give me a cup of alcohol, seltzers or something. But no, he had been having smart trouble, but he self diagnosed himself and said it was something else. So when he had the massive heart attack, it pretty much done it.

So it was a pretty big shock for everyone.


And the huge lots for the music.

I also had a single release on Del Mar. It was a dream of his and it was coming true.

What was a dream?

To just be a part of the same legacy that me and my younger brother big deal was being sons of money wars. We wanted to show the world kind of like what dad left. It wasn’t a total loss. We’re still here, we’re ready and we’re willing.

Yeah. So you never got a chance to play with him?

No. I’ve been to a lot of shows, but no, I never got a chance to play with him because I was pretty much still, like in 2021 when he passed, I was still pretty much joe Dabbing been deceived over 30 years since Muddy’s death.

Both Chicago and his home suburb of Westmont have named streets in his honor. He’s appeared on a postage stamp and a marker commemorates the site of his childhood home in Clarksdale. He was also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987. Muddy Waters was the single most important artist to emerge in postwar American blues. He was a peerless singer, a gifted songwriter and leader of one of the strongest bands of the genre.

Thank goodness that his sons, Mud Morgan Field and Big Bill Morganfield, are keeping his legacy alive today. And that’s where I’ll leave you. I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s show that celebrated the life and musical genius of the great Muddy Waters as told by his eldest son, Mud Morgan Field. Thanks for your company. I hope I can count on it again same time next week. Take care of yourself. Until we meet again, won’t you?

Bye now.
