MAL BLIND

THIS IS THE STORY OF MAL BLIND AND HIS LEGENDARY BLUESRATS

MAL BLIND founded THE BLUESRATS in 1967, since that time there were some occupation changes and over and over again also legends and stories around MAL BLIND and his band members. Grown up as a white orphan's child of a black great family in the marsh areas to the west of New Orleans he began early with the Slide-guitar play. Trigger was the attack of an alligator that MAL BLIND at the age of 8 years suffered. Fortunately, he survived briefly and spent some weeks to the recovery at the sister's home. There one gave him an old Dobro and he played them day and night to the entertainment of the sisters in spite of infernal pains he there had to live through. Already at the tender age of 12 years he developed quite own play technology them the famous tape in New Orleans allowed to prick up the ears. They engaged him often as a new talent; however, the strict laws forbade being so young on stage and stopped him from appearing in with the older professionals. Because he over and over stand illegally on stage till the morning hours, became known engaged he was quick like a coloured dog and had to flee regularly. Thus he got into contact quite early with the law. He left his adoption family around them, other annoyance to save he lived many years in a leasehold brothel room and would be loved by the ladies working there and would be fed free of charge. In this time originated his first single Southern Love produced by Jimmy Neville. It steps immediately on place 8 in the ranking of the leading radio stations of the south states. Then in 1967 he founded his Band MAL BLIND & THE BLUESRATS consisting of MAL BLIND (harm, guitar, and vocals), DOC “BANANA” CHAMBERS; (bass) and HANK “SHOE”MCDUFFIN (drums). This occupation existed till the end of the 70s. Than MAL BLIND was for some years disappeared. It entwined itself over, again rumours on him would have taken part successfully in a bank robbery, how ever, and old comrades-in-arms practiced themselves in the silence. Maybe these were also his drug problems, to those he was always defeated, some stories originated even around drug trafficking and thereby confirmed his always intensive contacts with the underworld witch did good business in New Orleans.In the 80s varying occupations were constantly in the agenda, in this time he travelled regularly by the clubs in Europe. Because he may not enter till this day any more in the United States. At the meantime he lives on a houseboat with the water ways of Europe, especially the Rhine, to he travels around. Spontaneously he gives concerts with his (how he thinks emphatically final) Band occupation:
