A Conversation for Sweet Home Chicago: Electric Blues
tonemonkey(Steve Cooper, of BLiM fame (?!) contact me!) Started conversation Jul 24, 2003
Apparently, and this may be hokum, Muddy was given the name by his parents/family as he had a habit of playing in a silted up muddy creek bed near his home as a child. It strikes me that parents who chose to give their child two surnames could nickname their son just about anything they wanted without seeming daft. Hope that filters the mud from the water for you!
