Brownbird Rudy Relic Admits: "The Better My Hair Was, the Better My Music Was"
"I think of one person before getting on stage: Charley Patton. If I had a blues spirit animal, it would be him. I don't feel so much as he's watching me as I am watching him. I've asked myself every morning of my blues career: Am I doing him justice? I don't mean copping his style; I mean living his spirit. He's the greatest to do it, and I'm honored to even try."
