Description:

"Blues and R&B"

Ron Thompson - guitar, slide guitar, steel guitar, mandolin, keyboards, and harmonica.

Not many living blues musicians can say they have performed with and recorded for legends like Big Mama Thornton, Sonny Rhodes, Luther Tucker, Jimmy McCracklin, Pee Wee Crayton, Carla Thomas, Booker T. Jones, Percy Mayfield, Etta James, B.B. King, and Jimmy Reed. Ron Thompson can, and that's just the beginning!

After serving as John Lee Hooker's bandleader for seven years, Thompson went on to form his own group-- Ron Thompson and His Resisters -- and toured extensively in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Central America. In the early 80's, Ron met Mick Fleetwood (Fleetwood Mac) and the two became musical partners and close friends. Mick convinced Ron to move to Los Angeles where they formed the band, Mick Fleetwood's Blue Whale.
