Jake La Botz (born 1968) is an American blues singer-songwriter from Chicago. He is also an actor. La Botz learned the blues from Maxwell Street veterans Jimmy Davis, David Honeyboy Edwards and Homesick James. In 2006, he created what he called the "tattoo circuit" by doing the world's first-ever tour of tattoo shops, the Tattoo Across America Tour. He has acted in several films including Animal Factory, Ghost World and the 2008 installment of Rambo. In Rambo, he played the role of a mercenary hired to rescue Christian missonaries captured by the Burmese army. A 2002 Billboard article said he learned from Chicago's old time blues musicians in an early period when he was playing in subways and on the street, as depicted in "Honky, the 1998 documentary, before he began acting and making albums. One of his mentors was David "Honeyboy" Edwards.show more
