The great guitarist/songwriter and Delta Blues singer Arthur “Big Boy” Crudup passed on this day in 1974 at the age of 69. One of his most well known songs was “That’s Alright Mama” made famous by Elvis Presley in 1954.

Many artists and bands have since covered this song in many unique ways. Today, we are looking for two of those artists and/or bands.

First, an Aussie 4 piece rock band that formed in the early 2000’s. Two members are brothers. They split up in 2012 but reformed in 2016.

Next, a British guitarist and vocalist who was a member of Procol Harum and went on to form his own power trio using his name.
