Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Baby Boy Warren (August 13, 1919 - July 1, 1977) was an American blues singer and guitarist, who was a leading figure on the Detroit blues scene in the 1950s. He was born Robert Henry Warren in Lake Providence, Louisiana in 1919, but moved with his parents to Memphis, Tennessee at the age of three months. He was interested in music from an early age, and was working occasionally as a musician from around 1931, when he dropped out of school, having learned to play guitar from two of his older brothers. During the 1930s he worked in W. C. Handy Park, Memphis, with Howling Wolf, Robert Jr. Lockwood, Little Buddy Doyle and others, and he appeared on the Helena, Arkansas based King Biscuit Time radio show with Sonny Boy Williamson around 1941. In 1942 he moved to Detroit, where he worked for General Motors while also performing as a musician.show more
