Who Killed John Henry?
Hi – for all you rock blues, R&B fans out there – the sublime Joe Bonamassa has a new album coming out later this month! The album is called “Who Killed John Henry?” – John Henry being a great American working class hero. John Henry was a railroad worker in the mid 19th C. When the boss brought in a steam powered hammer which threatened jobs. John Henry challenged the boss to a race – just him against the steam powered hammer. John won the race – but died doing so.
He has featured in many songs – for more info click on the title of this post!
Can’t wait to see Joe at the Royal Albert Hall in June!
