Making his name early on as an icon with the 6 piece R&B the Southside Stompers, Big Boy Bloater has proven himself to be one of the finest guitarists and performers of his generation and has drawn praise from his contemporaries for his powerful voice and dynamic and instantly recognisable guitar style with luminaries such as Imelda May who has confessed to being a “massive fan”, Jools Holland has declared him “one of the great bluesmen of our time”. Mark Lamarr even personally funded a vinyl run of the single Whammy just so he could have a copy.
