There should be one of Loki, and just Loki alone! He’s the most interesting character…apart from Stark, of course.

A Tale of Two “Sonny Boys”…
Top Photo: Sonny Boy Williamson (John Lee Williamson) is the original “Sonny Boy” Williamson from Jackson, Tennesse. He was the most famous blues harmonica player of the prewar era. In 1937, he recorded his first track for Bluebird, "Good Morning, Schoolgirl", and it became a major blues hit. To this day it is one of the most covered blues songs of all time. As a result of his immense popularity, any rising blues harmonica player following in the wake of John Lee “Sonny Boy” Williamson, would be nicknamed “Sonny Boy” to broaden their appeal. Tragically, John Lee Williamson was robbed and murdered in SouthSide Chicago in 1948, while walking home at night from a gig at the Plantation Club.

Bottom Photo: Sonny Boy Williamson II (aka “Rice” Miller) was born in Glendora, Mississippi, his given name was Alek Ford, (Miller is his mother’s maiden name.) He rose to prominence as a blues singer & harmonica player in the late 30’s and early 40’s on the Arkansas radio show King Biscuit Time. Around the time he started performing on the radio show, he took on the stage name “Sonny Boy” Williamson, as mentioned above in all likelihood to broaden his popular appeal. Adding to the confusion and controversy was the fact that Rice Miller would tell everyone, that he was the original “Sonny Boy” Williamson. Sonny Boy Williamson II, regardless of the name rip-off, forged his own unique style of blues, giving us such great hits as: "Nine Below Zero", "Eyesight To The Blind", "Cool Disposition", and "Fattening Frogs For Snakes".
