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.

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.
