Paul Lamb and the Kingsnakes with John Whitehill by g.p.

Paul Lamb and the Kingsnakes with John Whitehill Everyday I Have The Blues Paul Lamb Lamb started playing the harmonica during his childhood, inspired by Sonny Terry, and he was fortunate to meet and collaborate with him after beginning to perform in clubs by the age of fifteen.[3] Lamb played only acoustic blues until about 1980.[4] Lamb also played alongside his heroes such as Buddy Guy, Junior Wells, and Brownie McGhee.[3] He formed the Blues Burglars with guitarist Johnny Whitehill in the early 1980s, a formation that eventually became Paul Lamb & the King Snakes. They released an eponymous album with Ace Records in 1990, followed by several others, each building both Lamb's personal reputation as a harmonica player and the band's prestige.[3] He was awarded with the British Blues Connection's annual award for the best local harmonica player several years in a row whilst the King Snakes frequently took the title as best band.[4][5] As a consequence, his own harmonica skills have been in demand, and he had a hit in 1994 in the UK Singles Chart with the track, "Harmonica Man" (under the pseudonym of Bravado) with Pete Waterman.[2][5][6][7] Lamb has also worked with Mark Knopfler, The Who, Rod Stewart and Jimmy Nail, played on BBC and film soundtracks, and various television commercials in the UK.[3][7] Lamb was more recently inducted into the British Blues Awards Hall of Fame.[8][7] Blues & Rhythm magazine described his band as "lazily cocksure and coolly aggressive".[1] Johnny Whitehill Guitarist Johnny Whitehill has been a fixture on the British blues scene since the 1970s, emerging as a star while a member of the Blues Burglars, the band he formed with harpist Paul Lamb in the early '80s. As a guitarist, his inspirations and influences came from the likes of B.B. King, Freddie King,Albert King, T-Bone Walker, Albert Collins, Robert Johnson, Blind Boy Fuller, Lightnin' Hopkins, et al., and, later on, fellow British bluesman Peter Green, among others. He has recorded albums of his own intermittently, amid two decades working mostly with Paul Lamb & the King Snakes -- the successor band to the Blues Burglars -- and since the opening of the 21st century has toured England with his own group, Johnny Whitehill's Real Deal.
