Inclusiones al Salón de la Fama del Blues 2015

“The Blues Foundation announces the selection of three living performers to be inducted into its Blues Hall of Fame. The three are Tommy Brown, Eric Clapton and Little Richard. They join more than 130 performers who have been inducted each year beginning in 1980.

Eric Clapton has been tapped for induction into the Blues Hall of Fame for his many musical achievements as well as for his role as a popularizer of the entire genre. He brought the blues to audiences in his native Britain and throughout the world, illuminating the work of the original blues artists who inspired him.” With his induction, Little Richard joins an elite group of Blues Hall of Fame icons including Fats Domino, Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley who built upon rock ‘n’ roll’s foundation in the blues. His earliest recordings were in the blues vein and, throughout his career, he continued to employ a blues format in his work. In the early ‘50s Tommy Brown broke through nationally fronting the Griffin Brothers Orchestra with the #1 hit “Weepin’ & Cryin’.” He brought his intuitive sense of showmanship to the blues over a career that has now spanned over 75 years.

This year’s inductees’ official biographies and descriptions are available, as well as for all Hall of Fame inductees, at http://www.blues.org/awards-search/?cat=hof
