McKinley Morganfield (April 4, 1913 – April 30, 1983), known professionally as Muddy Waters, was an American blues musician who is often cited as the "father of modern Chicago blues".

CLUE#1 ROLLIN' STONE

A blues song recorded by Muddy Waters in 1950. It is his interpretation of "Catfish Blues", a Delta blues that dates back to 1920s Mississippi. "Rollin' Stone" has been identified as one of the first songs that Muddy Waters learned to play and an early favorite. The words refer to the traditional proverb, "A rolling stone gathers no moss". English  rock group the Rolling Stones and the music magazine Rolling Stone took their names from the song. In 1967, "Rollin' Stone" (and "Still a Fool") was used as part of Jimi Hendrix's "Catfish Blues", a homage to Muddy Waters, and included on the albums BBC Sessions and Blues (Hendrix's signature songs "Voodoo Chile" and "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" evolved from his "Catfish Blues").

CLUE#2 STELLA

He bought his first guitar at the age of 17 — a Stella acoustic that he bought for $2.50 from the Sears, Roebuck & Co. catalog.

CLUE#3 MAXWELL STREET MARKET

Maxwell Street Market was the Chicago neighborhood where blues musicians busked on the street from the 1940s until it was leveled in 1996.Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Howlin’ Wolf, Elmore James, “Maxwell Street” Jimmy Davis and other legendary blues artists played their first performances in Chicago on Maxwell Street for spare change from passersby before graduating to the clubs.
