This is Luther "Snake Boy" Johnson. Real name: Lucious Brinson Johnson. Johnson was a guitarist, bass player and vocalist who formed his first band in Chicago at the age of 19. His boyhood ambition was to play with Muddy Waters; he achieved this in the 60s. Johnson played in the raw, urban style of Waters, and was also proficient at older country blues styles. His first recording (as ‘Little Luther’) was for Chess Records and he also recorded with Waters’ sideman for the Spivey and Douglas labels. In the 70s he made two albums for the Black And Blue company while touring Europe. Born August 30, 1941 in Davisboro, Georgia, USA, died March 18, 1976 in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Johnson lived in Boston, Massachusetts, from 1970 until his death from cancer in 1976.

The confusing plethora of artists working under the name of Luther (nickname here) Johnson can leave even those with a decent knowledge of blues in a major state of confusion. But in this biographical entry, we concern ourselves with the life and times of Luther "Snakeboy"/ "Georgia Boy" Johnson who, to make matters even more confusing, also worked and recorded under the names Little Luther and Luther King. (These were his stage names, his real name is Lucius Brinson.) Upon his military discharge, he picked guitar as a member of the Milwaukee Supreme Angels gospel group, working the local church circuit. But the blues bug hit and he soon had his own little blues trio together, eventually settling in Chicago by the early '60s. He played for a while with Elmore James and was a regular fixture in the Muddy Waters band by the mid-'60s. He recorded as Little Luther for Chess in the mid-'60s ("The Twirl") and by 1970 was relocated to Boston, MA, working as a solo artist. The next five years found him working steadily on the college and blues festival circuit before cancer overtook him on March 18, 1976, at a mere 34 years of age. (Cub Koda)
