Muddy Waters was born this day in 1913

McKinley Morganfield (known as "Muddy Waters") was born this day in 1913.  He is often considered the "father of modern Chicago Blues" and was ranked #17 on Rolling Stone magazine's 100 Greatest Guitarists Of All Time.  His influence is impossible to measure.  Quite simply, he was one of the most important figures in blues history.
