CHARLEY PATTON—Patton’s standing in blues history is immense: no country blues artist, save Blind Lemon Jefferson, exerted more influence on the future of the form or on its succeeding generation of stylists than Patton.  Everyone from Son House, Howlin’ Wolf, and Robert Johnson, to Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, and Elmore James can trace their blues styles back to Patton.
