Kenny Wayne Shepherd
Kenny Wayne Shepherd was born in Shreveport, Louisiana June 12, 1977. He is self-taught, and knowledge of music gained from listening to CDs from gigantic collection of his father – a radio DJ and concerts organizer. He interested guitar seriously in the age of 7, when he heard playing of Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Quickly he began to rip off another CDs, listening an infinite number of times to recordings of Vaughan, Muddy Waters and Albert Lee, trying to decipher the note for note their playing.
