In memoriam (March 27, 1972 - March 8, 2019):

"I was born in 1972 in Chicago, Illinois. My father was the great Eddie Taylor Sr., who played with Blues greats such as Jimmy Reed, John Lee Hooker, Elmore James, Sunnyland Slim, and others. I started playing guitar when I was about 13 years old. When I was about 18 years old I started hanging out and traveling with artists like Hubert Sumlin, Sam Lay, and Eddie Shaw. I always wanted to play the Blues growing up. Watching all the great musicians in my home was an inspiration. Since then I've traveled all over the country backing artists like Buddy Guy, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, and Billy Gibbons. I continue to play my Blues and share my love and passion for the music."
