Wayne Hussey stresses in a lot of interviews (more…)

On January 26, 2018, MIG Music starts the new year with a sensational Rockpalast recording of blues heavyweight Muddy Waters. In December 1978, at the Westfalenhalle in Dortmund, the “Hoochie Coochie Man” was still at the height of his creative power.
