Video of the day: Bob Dylan plays Muddy Waters


Muddy Waters was born 101 years ago today, we celebrate this on JV today by dedicating todays video to Muddy Waters.

Here is Bob Dylan singing the famous Hoochie Coochie Man (written by Willie Dixon and first recorded by Muddy Waters):

Hoochie Coochie Man” (sometimes referred to as “(I’m Your) Hoochie Coochie Man“) is a blues standard written by Willie Dixon and first recorded by Muddy Waters in 1954 in Chicago. The song was a major hit upon its release, reaching #8 on Billboard magazine’s Black Singles chart. The intro and verse to Muddy Water’s version feature stop-time while the chorus features a refrain. According to an account by Dave Van Ronk, Muddy Waters stated that the song is supposed to have a comic effect.

  1. Yeah, that’s Bob, alright. Steady Rollin’ Bob Margolin, Muddy’s longtime Washington DC=based sideman. Bob once showed up to play with Rick Danko at a hole in the wall on Capitol Hill in my DC days. Introducing him, Rick said “we were movie stars together,” a reference to The Last Waltz.

    1. Yeah, I was mistaken. Please forgive me, and notice that I have replaced the photo.

      Thanks for a great comment, always appreciated!


      …or is the second photo of Bob Margolin as well?

  2. The person on the first photo between Johnny Winters and Muddy Waters is not Bob Dylan.

    1. Ok, I was in doubt myself, will change it as soon as possible

      Thanks for the feedback

      edit: changed for a more “artistic” approach
