Roger Hurricane Wilson
Two decades ago he taught hundreds of people to play guitar. In 1972 he began playing professionally. He jammed with Roy Buchanan, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Albert Collins, Jimmy Thackery, Lucky Peterson and Charlie Musselwhite. He shared the stage doing shows with B.B. King, John Mayall, Delbert McClinton, Taj Majal, Roomful of Blues, Dickey Betts and Edgar Winter. Now the Hurricane follows his own forecast. With 2 CDs on the market, and Roger and his band on the road, they are working overtime, nearly 300 nights a year.
Legendary Atlanta blues guitarist, Ichiban recording artist Luther "Houserocker" Johnson refers to Roger as "Fingers" Wilson. Johnson says, "I can hear what he is playing, but I sho' can't see it."
True Blue Productions president, Eric King, owner of world renowned Atlanta blues club, Blind Willie's, says "Roger "Hurricane" Wilson is the NEXT Atlanta blues artist to break nationally."
