Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lester Butler (12 November 1959 - 10 May 1998) was an American blues harmonica player and singer. He achieved fame as the singer and harmonica player for the Los Angeles, California, based blues roots band, The Red Devils. Butler was born in Virginia. The Red Devils (originally known as The Blue Shadows) released one album, 1992's King King. It was produced by Rick Rubin on his Def American record label. The group featured drummer Bill Bateman (The Blasters), plus Paul Size on lead guitar and pianist Gene Taylor. The Red Devils were known for backing Mick Jagger on the Rubin produced sessions for the album Wandering Spirit, though those tracks were not issued at the time (they have since cropped up on various bootlegs, and one track was officially released on a Mick Jagger compilation on Rhino Records in 2007). The band also backed actor and sometime musician Bruce Willis, when the action star performed at his Planet Hollywood clubs. The Devils also backed Johnny Cash on music that was not released until the country singer's death, on the boxed set Unearthed.show more
