Hello folks! It’s your grumpy neighborhood bluesman back at ya once again!

In my previous articles with Revolver we explored the world of the blues through drugs, its regions, and its powerful women. Today I thought we’d close the year by sharing with you a playlist featuring some of the bluesmen born in December!

We’ve got the sounds of legends such as Lonnie Brooks, Sonnyboy Williamson II, Bo Didley, and many more! Happy holidays and make sure to drink your blues away this Christmas!
