Hall of Fame Essay

1994

Mary Katherine Aldin

There never was anybody quite like Willie Dixon. 

The first thing you saw when you met him was that huge grin atop the larger-than-life body; his enor­mous personal warmth, combined with an inexhaustible fund of street-smart music business wis­dom and a tireless devotion to promoting awareness of the blues, won him friends and admirers everywhere he went.

So he made me what I am, so far as the basics of my music.
