Studebaker John
Studebaker John
Studebaker John Grimaldi was born in an Italian-American section of Chicago and started playing harmonica at age 7. Under the spell of music he heard on Maxwell Street, Chicago's famed blues melting pot, Grimaldi began performing as Studebaker John & The Hawks in the '70s. John still owns and drives a Studebaker Hawk, but the name also refers to his friend J.B. Hutto and his band, The Hawks. John began playing guitar after seeing Hound Dog Taylor & The Houserockers. "...Hound Dog started playing, hitting notes that sent chills up and down my spine." After that, Grimaldi knew he had to play slide guitar.
