Born To Play The Blues

It was not until Willie’s teenage years that he realized musicians could travel the world to play music. After fifty-three years in the music business, Willie “Big Eyes” Smith had proven time and time again that he found his calling and was born to play the blues. Just one look into his eyes when he was on stage performing and you know that Willie felt the same excitement about the music that he did when he first heard Muddy Waters’ electrifying sounds back in 1953, at Zanzibar in Chicago.
