You Dont Know - T Bone Walker Jr.
b. 22 February 1933, Royse City, Texas, USA. Rankin’s uncle was T-Bone Walker, who encouraged the youngster to play blues guitar and then took him on the road as a valet in the late 40s. He worked and recorded with Walker during the 50s, and was dubbed ‘T-Bone’ Walker Jnr. around 1955, and it was under this name that he recorded for the Midnite label in 1962. He has been less active on the music scene since the mid-60s but did surface to play at the T-Bone Walker Memorial Concert in Los Angeles, California, in May 1975, when Blues Unlimited reported that ‘he did a fantastic job on his uncle’s classics’.
