Among St. Louis guitarists, Billy Barnett is a bona fide living legend, but that doesn't mean he drives the blues on cruise control. He's got the key to the hard rocking highway and he's not afraid to use it.

Whether playing a country blues-flavored acoustic set or turning up his full electric band past 11, Barnett follows in the footsteps of a diverse pantheon of masters, from Jeff Beck to Billy Gibbons to fellow East St. Louisian Albert King. Since picking up the guitar at the age of 9, he's absorbed his heroes' styles, translating them with a fierce, independent approach to the blues.
