January 20, 1952 – June 13, 1993
Often compared to Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Campbell was a Shreveport-born blues singer, songwriter and guitarist that played and sang with such fury that he left most audiences awestruck. After moving to Texas as a child, Campbell picked up the guitar at the age of eight, and by the time he hit his teens, he was sharing the stage with the likes of Son Seals, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, and Albert Collins. Campbell was eventually signed by Elektra Records who released just two albums before he suddenly died of a heart attack while he slept on June 13, 1993.
