Elvin Bishop dropped out of his second year at the University of Chicago to dive head first in the local blues scene. Fascinated by what he was hearing around him, he met up with Paul Butterfield and joined the Butterfield Blues band. He split from the outfit in 1968 to experience the crazy musical melting pot that once was San Francisco, where the sonic diversity crept into his sound in the form of a gospel, country, and blues hybrid. On the famous Fillmore stage, Bishop often sat in with the likes of B.B. King, Eric Clapton, and even the late, great Jimi Hendrix. He soon formed the Elvin Bishop Group and recorded the notorious "Fooled Around and Fell in Love." Bishop currently resides in San Francisco where he enjoys gardening and the occasional gig.
