Maybe baby's found somebody new Or is my baby still my baby true? Bishop 's guitar work could be flashy, but it was also strongly rooted in blues and country traditions, and he was fluid and playful in a way that many guitar heroes of the '70s were not.
Elvin Bishop was born in Glendale, California, on October 21, He grew up on a farm in Iowa with no electricity or running water, and eventually moved to Oklahoma with his family when he was ten. Raised in an all-white community, his only exposure to African-American traditions was the radio, which introduced him to the blues stations in Shreveport, Louisiana. The piercing sound of Jimmy Reed 's harmonica won his attention; Bishop would later liken it to a crossword puzzle that he had to figure out.
Bishop won a National Merit Scholarship to the University of Chicago in , giving him a chance to immerse himself in the thriving Windy City blues scene. After two years of college, Bishop dropped out and pursued music full time, eventually meeting Howlin' Wolf 's guitarist Smokey Smothers and learning the basics of blues guitar from him. In the early '60s, Bishop teamed up with blues harp master Paul Butterfield and they formed the core of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band , a group that helped bridge the gap between rock and blues.
