Rocking through what is now album 10 in a 30 year career with the legendary Alligator Records, Lil' Ed & the Blues Imperials show no sign of slowing down. Though not as nimble as when he regularly performed back bends and toe walks, the energy and crunching houserockin' blues Lil' Ed Williams and his bandmates generate is as authentic as their late label mate Hound Dog Taylor. Reflecting on those three decades of recording and performing, Williams said he has lived his dream.
“The funny thing about it, when I was walking around praying to the good Lord above saying what I wanted out of life, which was a wife and family, and a nice house to live in, I never asked for too much. We start asking and we get greedy, you know. And here it is: 19 (years of marriage) and 30 years later, I pretty much got what I asked for,” said Williams.
