News about the newest issue of Living Blues from Managing Editor Mark Camarigg.

August/September Living Blues

11838647_944416692264312_3385802636877092922_oThe August issue of Living Blues is available now and features our cover story on Eddy “The Chief” Clearwater. Clearwater turned 80 earlier this year and we decided it was a good time to catch up with one of Chicago Blues’ elder statesman.

The new issue also includes a look back at the life and career of the King of the Blues, B.B. King. First, we examine King’s career and influence as covered via the pages of LB. Writer David Whiteis’ tribute gives an overview of King’s life and influence and we wrap things up with a decade-by-decade guide to B.B. King’s albums.

Finally, with a record number of ballots cast, we announce the winners of the 2015 Living Blues Awards and include our usual radio charts, record reviews and up-to-date blues news.
