And this is just a partial list...I know Johnny Winter has recorded a least a dozen of these songs, and I don't see him mentioned anywhere.

If it wasn't for that I'd argue Willie Nelson.

What I find interesting about Dixon is so many have heard his songs and so few have heard him.
Whenever I here a song that blows me away I check who wrote it and see what else by them I can find, which is a lot easier now then it was in the 70's.
His name has come up more times then not.
Great song writer and artist.

I believe this is the only Dixon song to make it to #1 on any of the major charts...It's Little Walter, (with Willie Dixon on bass)

This is a nice trip through the music time tunnel that got us from blues to rock and roll to heavy metal:

First, listen to the blues: Muddy Waters (with Willie Dixon on bass)


Next is the Rock and Roll version... Rolling Stones version Steven posted...

Then you have the hard-rock/heavy metal version:

He was an excellent bass player also:


Here's a rare video of Willie playing guitar and singing:


Kurt, have you seen the American Folk Blues Festivale DVDs? If not, I highly recommend them. Terrific stuff. The above video came from those DVDs.
