Lance Lopez at Biscuits and Blues in Union Square, San Francisco

Lance Lopez

There's no doubt about it, the state of Texas is well known worldwide for its fiery blues guitar players.
Even just a cursory look will reveal the state's rich tradition, which easily rivals Chicago and Mississippi for producing players who have been both originators and contributors to the legacy of the guitar's significant role in the genre's history. Dating back to the 1920's with "Blind" Lemon Jefferson, continuing through the 1950's with such legends as Freddie King, T-Bone Walker and "Lightning" Hopkins, with the advent of the rock era of the 1960's the pressure cooker exploded.
