Muddy Waters at Goldsmiths 1968

This poster popped up recently on Twitter (@salvatorRosa) - legendary blues artist Muddy Waters playing at Goldsmiths College in New Cross, November 29 1968. Also featuring Otis Spann (playing with Waters), British blues guitarist Gordon Smith (who has played with Kevin Coyne among others) and Mike Kean's Dusty Blues Ensemble.

However, as somebody in comments has pointed out, the image in the poster appears to be John Lee Hooker rather than Muddy Waters! Awkward...

Hilariously, that’s a picture of John Lee Hooker.

Lol, reckon you could be right. I was wondering because when I found some footage of Muddy Waters in 1968 he was looking a lot fitter!

I had a good laugh too.I played guitar in the support band 'Mike Kean's Dusty Blues ~Ensemble'.We were in fact 'The Dusty Blues Band'.The 'frontman' was Pete Keen.
