The Lucky Stiffs featuring Nick Sharpe
Born and raised in Miami, Nick Sharpe came up on Albert King by way of Clapton and Hendrix in the '60s, learnin his licks by jammin' blues progressions for hours as a teen. Right out of high school, he started payin' his dues playing six nighters on the "Big Daddy's" circuit in the mid '70's. After trippin' through all kinds of bags, those Albert King licks came back to haunt his soul, this time by way of Stevie Ray. Like the hounds of hell, those haunting licks was chasin him down, so the Lucky Stiffs came together around '95 to help him along and they're still runnin to this day.
