Chicago guitar player Ladell McLin lays down his electric blues in the style Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy, and Jimi Hendrix. McLin, who used to curl up inside his father's bass drum for naps, began playing at the age of 12. He took gigs around town with his brother/drummer Andre Cotton, appearing at the Chicago Blues Festival and the Checkerboard Lounge. He has since backed everyone from Koko Taylor to Johnny "Guitar" Watson, and appeared on numerous recordings, including James Blood Ulmer's Grammy-nominated Memphis Blood: The Sun Sessions.
