Another “This Historic Day In Music” Quiz

What was the name of the electric Blues guitarist who was born on this day, April 25, in the year of 1923, in Indianola, Mississippi?

Hint #1: He played a standard-issue, Gibson Flying V electric guitar – which he named “Lucy” –  left-handed and thus, upside-down.

Hint #2: In the All Music Guide to Popular Music (4th Edition), Daniel Erlewine & Stephen Thomas Erlewine write about this musician that: “His style is immediately distinguishable from all other Blues guitarists, and he’s one of the most important Blues players to ever pick up the electric guitar.”

Hint #3: I wrote about him in my archived blog post of April 25, 2010.
