Luther Allison (1939 rugpjūčio 17 — 1997 rugpjūčio 12) Amerikos bliuzo gitaristas. Gimė Widener, Arkanse, bet 1951, kai Luther'iui buvo dvylika metų, šeima persikėlė į Čikagą. Dar Arkanzase jis savarankiškai pramoko groti gitara, dažnai klausydavosi bliuzo. Vėliau dažnai stoviniuodavo prie įvairių bliuzo klubų, tikėdamasis būti pakviestas pagroti vidun. Matyt, vienąkart taip ir įvyko, nes dar būdamas jaunuolis jis jau grojo su Howlin’o Wolf’o grupe, pritarė James Cotton...

1998 - aisiais, po mirties, įtrauktas į bliuzo šlovės muziejaus sąrašą.

Career

 

His big break came in 1957 when Muddy Waters invited Allison to the stage. He worked the club circuit throughout the late 1950s and early 1960s and recorded his first single in 1965. Allison was signed to the Delmark Records label in 1967 and the following year his debut album Love Me Mama was released. He performed a set at the 1969 Ann Arbor Blues Festival and was invited to the next three consecutive festivals.[2] He also toured nationwide and, in 1972, was signed to Motown Records, one of the few blues artists to do so. By the mid 1970s he began touring Europe, and moved to France in 1977. He would not return to the United States for another fifteen years. Allison was known for his lengthy concert performances, lengthy guitar solos and crowd walking with his Gibson Les Paul.
Allison's manager, and European agent, Thomas Ruf founded the label Ruf Records in 1994. Since signing with Ruf Records, Allison then launched a comeback in association with Alligator Records. Alligator founder, Bruce Iglauer, convinced Allison to return to the United States. The album Soul Fixin' Man was recorded and released in 1994, and Allison toured the U.S. and Canada. Allison won four W.C. Handy Awards in 1994. With the James Solberg Band backing him, non-stop touring and the release of Blue Streak (featuring song "Cherry Red Wine"), Allison continued to earn more Handys and gain wider recognition. Allison scored a host of Living Blues Awards and was featured on the cover pages of major blues publications.
He appeared at the 1995 San Francisco Blues Festival.
Allison covered "You Can't Always Get What You Want" for the 1997 Rolling Stones' tribute album, Paint it Blue: Songs of the Rolling Stones.
In the middle of his summer of 1997 tour, Allison checked into a hospital for chest pains and breathing problems. It was discovered that he had a tumor on his lung that was about to metastasize to his spine. In and out of a coma, Allison died on August 12, 1997, five days before his 58th birthday, in Madison, Wisconsin. His album Reckless had just been released. His son Bernard Allison, at one time a member of his band, is now a solo recording artist.
He was posthumously inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 1998. In 2000, the Chicago Sun-Times called him "The Bruce Springsteen of the blues".
Allison is buried at Washington Memory Gardens Cemetery in Homewood, Illinois.

Title: Watching You

Watching you baby, watching you all the time
Watching you baby, just watching you all the time
Watching you destroy yourself woman,
All you do is sit around drinkin' wine

You're worryin' me baby, I'm sittin' here wonderin' what in the world can I do
You're worryin' me baby, I'm sittin' here wonderin' what in the world can I do
We got so much to live for darling,
But I just can't sit here doin' nothin' and watchin' that wine destroy you

I'm takin' you to the doctor darlin', maybe the doctor knows what's goin' on in your head
Yeah I'm takin' you to the doctor darlin', maybe he knows what's goin' on in your head
You gonna keep on drinkin' that bad wine baby,
Even the grass that grows on your grave will be cherry red
