Twelve fingered rough and ready blues maestro. Theodore Roosevelt "Hound Dog" Taylor (April 12, 1915 - December 17, 1975) was an American Chicago blues guitarist and singer. Career Taylor was born in Natchez, Mississippi in 1915 (although some sources say 1917). He originally played piano, but began playing guitar when he was 20. He moved to Chicago in 1942. He became a full-time musician around 1957 but remained unknown outside of the Chicago area where he played small clubs in the black neighborhoods and also at the open-air Maxwell Street Market. He was known for his electrified slide guitar playing roughly styled after that of Elmore James, his cheap Japanese Teisco guitars, and his raucous boogie beats.

He was also famed among guitar players for having six fingers on his left hand. After hearing Taylor with his band, the HouseRockers (Brewer Phillips on second guitar and Ted Harvey on drums) in 1970 at Florence's Lounge on Chicago's South Side, Bruce Iglauer - at the time a shipping clerk for Delmark Records - tried to get him signed by his employer. Having no success getting Delmark to sign Taylor, Iglauer formed a small record label with a $2500 inheritance and recorded Taylor's debut album, Hound Dog Taylor and the HouseRockers, on his fledgling Alligator Records in 1971. It was the first release on Alligator, now a major blues label. It was recorded in a studio in just two nights.

Iglauer began managing and booking the band, which toured nationwide and performed with Muddy Waters and Big Mama Thornton.[citation needed] The band became particularly popular in the Boston area, where Taylor inspired a young protégé named George Thorogood. A live album Live At Joe's Place documented a Boston appearance from 1972. Their second release, Natural Boogie, was recorded in late 1973, and led to greater acclaim and touring. In 1975, Taylor and his band toured Australia and New Zealand with Freddie King and Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee. His third Alligator album, Beware of the Dog, was recorded live in 1974 but was only released after his death.

More posthumous releases occurred as well, including Genuine Houserocking Music and Release the Hound, on the Alligator label as well as some bootleg live recordings. Taylor died of lung cancer in 1975, and was buried in Restvale Cemetery in Alsip, Illinois. Taylor was posthumously inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 1984.[citation needed] Discography Hound Dog Taylor and The HouseRockers (1971)(Alligator Records) Natural Boogie (1974)(Alligator Records) Beware The Dog!

Some time ago, I needed to buy a car for my firm but I didn\'t earn enough money and couldn\'t purchase anything. Thank goodness my mother adviced to try to take the mortgage loans at reliable bank. Hence, I did that and used to be happy with my commercial loan.

People deserve good life time and mortgage loans or just small business loan can make it better. Just because freedom bases on money.

A lot of specialists tell that credit loans aid people to live their own way, just because they are able to feel free to buy needed things. Furthermore, various banks offer financial loan for all people.

I received my first loan when I was very young and this helped me very much. Nevertheless, I need the auto loan once more time.
