The Beatles Sparked Robert Cray's Passion
"I got a guitar because The Beatles came out," Cray told Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania's Times Leader. "I wanted to be a Beatle, and my parents thought I was nuts."
A couple of years later, Cray says that he was lucky enough to catch a Jimi Hendrix concert, an event that changed his outlook on music and his instrument. "After that, I started listening to all these guys with cool names like Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf. I got really into blues and R&B right before getting out of high school." more on this story
