Willie “Sonny Boy Williamson”, whose real name was Alex Miller, was thought to have been born in 1912 and died on May 25, 1965 of a heart attack. He became interested in music in the 1930s and travelled around the South. In 1941 he got a regular job on a commercial radio station and the sponsors changed his professional name to Sonny Boy Williamson. In 1949 he was living with his sister and her husband – Howlin’ Wolf. This classic blues recording for Ace Records was made in 1955.
