About Junior Wells

One of the true giants of blues harmonica, Junior Wells is regarded--along with Little Walter and Sonny Boy Williamson--as a definitive post-WWII figure. Wells rose to prominence after replacing Little Walter in Muddy Waters's band, then reached the pinnacle of his fame in the mid 1960s when he and Buddy Guy formed a fruitful partnership. He performed until his death in 1998.
