Legendary axe man GUITAR SHORTY is more popular now than at any time in his storied 50-year career. One of the best-known names in blues, his last album, 2007's We the People, won the Blues Music Award for Contemporary Blues Album of the Year. That record and 2005's Watch Your Back have sold over 33,000 units worldwide. Bare Knuckle is another heavy dose of Guitar Shorty blues. The guitar legend fires off bruising riffs and raw, fervent vocals on an exhilarating collection of deep, hard-rocking tracks, while his up-to-the-minute lyrics address everything from the economic meltdown and the plight of Iraq War veterans to timeless tales of love won and lost.
