Theodore Roosevelt Taylor - Played His Slide-Guitar Around Natchez MS At Parties And Juke-Joints, And by 1935 Was Ready To Try His Luck In Chicago, Basing His Style On The Distorted Elmore James Sound, But With Even More Drive And Energy. A Full-Time Musician By 1957, Hound Dog Did Not Record Much Until 1971 Under The Guidance Of Alligator Records; The Blues World Took Notice. The Influence Hound Dog Had On Hard Rocking Blues Bands Is Undeniable. Theodore Roosevelt Taylor On In 1975, And Posthumously Inducted Into The Blues Hall Of Fame In 1984
