Congratulations to Big George Brock! As the RFT states, he truly is the proverbial "real deal" (as well as a heck of a nice guy). Congrats, Big George. You deserve it.
Best Blues Artist - 2007
Big George Brock
Harmonica player and singer George Brock is noteworthy simply because he's one of the few remaining members of his generation of St. Louis area bluesmen still actively performing and recording. But Brock is much, much more than just one of the last men standing: He's a superb showman and a gritty vocalist whose music embodies the connection between the informal, rural blues of his native Mississippi and the electrified big-city sound of his adopted hometown. For those listeners who value authentic blues roots and feeling over slickness, Big George Brock and the Houserockers represent the real deal.
