Song of the Day: Lonnie Brooks, “Two-Headed Man”

Blues guitarist Lonnie Brooks, one of several guitarists who called themselves "Guitar Junior," would be 87 today (he died in 2017). Brooks moved to Chicago in 1960 and played mostly on the West Side, occasionally playing in northern Indiana and on Rush Street on Chicago’s North Side. "Two-Headed Man" was done live in 1999; like many blues songs, it’s a combination of lyrics from several other songs. Accompanying Lonnie is harmonicist Sugar Blue, who just celebrated his 71st birthday on Wednesday.
