Lurrie Bell (Born December 13, 1958) is a blues guitarist and singer from Chicago, Illinois, USA. His father was renowned blues harmonica player Carey Bell. Lurrie started playing guitar at the age of six, and in his teens he polished his skills playing with the legends of Chicago blues scene including Eddy Clearwater, Big Walter Horton and Eddie Taylor not to mention his father. In the mid 1970's, he went on to join Koko Taylor's Blues Machine and he toured with the band for 4 years. In the late 1970's, he formed the Sons of Blues with musicians including Billy Branch on harmonica.

Three track of the bands recordings were featured in the Alligator Records compilation Living Chicago Blues Vol. 3 released in 1978. In 1989, he released his first solo effort Everybody Wants To Win on JSP Records. Though Lurrie's career appeared to be headed in the right direction drawing attentions of the blues fans from the early stage as a young prodigy of the blues, he suffered from drug abuse in the early 1990's which kept him away from performing on regular basis. However, he made a comeback in 1995 with album Mercurial Son, his first from the Delmark label. Series of albums followed thereafter, and he started to perform more frequently in the Chicago club circuit. Lurrie is featured on album Gettin' Up, Live at Buddy Guy's Legends, Rosa's and Lurrie's Home, a 2007 release from Delmark where he plays with his father Carey.

Soon after this release, Carey died and this became his last recorded effort. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
