Elvin Bishop was inspired to play the guitar because as an early teen he noticed that the girls at the dance seemed to always hang out with the guitarist! When he discovered the blues, he was hooked, as he had found the style of music he felt could best express his feelings. Over his long and successful career he also wrote a series of songs that became hit pop songs, as well as blues standards heard all around the world. Among his best known songs, "Fooled Around and Fell in Love," "Struttin' My Stuff," and "Fishin'."
