Hello! Today I'm talking to the great Charlie Musselwhite. The Mississipi-born harmonica player made his name in Memphis and Chicago and has become one of the true greats of the blues harp world. Charlie was the inspiration for Elwood Blues, the character played by Dan Aykroyd in the film 'The Blues Brothers'. He has won a Grammy as well as several Blues Music Awards, and has recorded with Bonnie Raitt, Tom Waits and many others.
