Stuart Maxwell


Stuart met the blues in 1973 and has been looking for them ever since. He picked up the harmonica after hearing Sonny Boy Williamson, Junior Wells and Howlin' Wolf and fell in love with the poetry of the blues at the same time. He fronted the dapper blues journeymen Mr. Charlie - still going, officially - and then joined the classy British blues-rock (sorry Joe, not my idea) outfit Storm Warning, making four albums and touring Europe. He also toured with the Mick Ralphs Blues Band, in between the guitarist's outings with Mott The Hoople and Bad Company. And then along came The Shufflepack, which he created with Joe and Tom to play the electric blues the way it was played at the beginning, with the shuffling, swinging grooves make you wanna dance, jump and shout. In between, he loves typewriters and walks in terror of rehearsals.
