Remembering guitarist Michael Bernard “Mike” Bloomfield - Born in Chicago #OnThisDay 1943... He took the blues world by storm for his stunning work with The Paul Butterfield Blues Band. This led to gigs as lead guitarist on Bob Dylan’s Highway 61 Revisited, and Super Sessions in 1968 along with Al Kooper. He was also a founding member of the short lived band The Electric Flag. Did Mike Bloomfield’s playing have an effect on you?
