Kenny Wayne Shepherd
He’s been listed among the top three blues guitarists of all time by Guitar World magazine, scored more than a half-dozen Top 10 singles and released a platinum-selling disc (1997’s Trouble Is…) that holds the record for the longest-running album on the Billboard Blues Charts. Not too shabby for a completely self-taught guitarist who can’t even read music. Acclaimed for his scorching blues-rock sound, Louisiana native Kenny Wayne Shepherd is truly a musical force to be reckoned with, playing classic blues with a modern twist while opening for the Eagles and touring with the late, great B.B. King.
