An unforgettable and lamentably under-documented bluesman, Walter "Lightnin' Bug" Rhodes (born 1939 in Beaufort, NC), had he lived, would be one of the stars of blues & soul today. A unique and creative talent, he wrote and performed harrowing original songs delivered with a searing guitar technique and passionate vocal style. Starting off in gospel (The Golden Arrows of Far Rockaway Beach, NY), acting as lead guitarist for Wilson Pickett for four years, and later veering into his career - Northern soul, rock, and blues (a handful of now-rare 45s as Little Red Walter, The Blonde Bomber, and Walter Rhodes). also he played guitar with Otis Redding and B.B. King.
