Keith Ferguson

Texas Blues Bass
by Detlef Schmidt, forewords by Jimmie Vaughan and Billy F. Gibbons
Ask any blues bass player to name their most influential blues bass player, and almost all will mention Willy Dixon for upright bass and Keith Ferguson from the Fabulous Thunderbirds for electric bass. Keith played with all the great guitar players from Texas: Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmie Vaughan, Rocky Hill, Billy F. Gibbons, Omar Dykes, and Alan Haynes, just to mention a few. In this extensively researched biography, Detlef Schmidt starts with Keith’s early childhood, and on to his playing days. Keith’s role in the late 1970s blues revival can’t be forgotten, with his style of playing and dressing being influential to many blues bands all over the world. Many of Keith Ferguson’s old friends and musical partners share their memories of a great bass player and fascinating person, with quotes and interviews from Johnny Winter, Lou Ann Barton, Fran Christina, Preston Hubbard, Mike Buck, and many more. Hundreds of never before published photographs and personal documents are shown for the first time. Oversized, 320 pages, full-color throughout.
