Is there another more responsible for the blues as we know them than Willie Dixon? A songwriter and musician without peer, Willie wrote blues standard after blues standard. Not only did his songs become career-making hits for the likes of Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Little Walter and Otis Rush, among others, but it inspired another generation of musicians including the Rolling Stones, the Yardbirds, Cream and Led Zeppelin, to name just a few.
