He Don't Play No Rock & Roll

This is Mississippi Fred McDowell. He is possibly one of the greatest slide players/singers ever to emerge from the delta. He inspired countless white boys abroad and at home and The Rolling Stones paid homage with their version of "You Gotta Move" on their seminal album Sticky Fingers. Once quoted as saying "I don't play no rock & roll" he was a true Mississippi blues man. Not much to say that the video and music can't, so enjoy.
