Eddie Langlois, He was born on 15 January 1936 in New Orleans and passed away on 10 March 1985 in Slidell, LA., was heavily influenced by Eddie “Guitar Slim” Jones by far the city’s most successful exponent of the craft. In fact Lang was playing second guitar in Slim’s band when he cut his first session for Bullet. Lang returned to small band blues for his Superdome tracks with “Food Stamp Blues” becoming his best ever seller when Jewel picked it up. At the end of the 70s he was sadly incapacitated by a stroke and he passed away in 1985.
