(The Blues) Mud Morganfield, eldest son of Muddy Waters, is preparing to release a tribute album to his father - but he recalls a time when he referred to the blues as "noise."

It took him decades to build a relationship with the kind of music pioneered by Waters, real names McKinley Morganfield. He tells the Telegraph of his formative years: "I just thought it was a bunch of guys playing. As a matter of fact I probably called it 'noise' a few times - 'What you making all that noise for?' I was just a kid; I related to what my peers relater to."

The 60-year-old, who released his debut album in 2008, now admits: "I ran from the blues, and I ran from it, and I ran from it. But it caught up with me." more on this story
