Lonnie Brooks (guitar & vocals) is featured performing with his son Ronnie Baker Brooks (guitar) at the 1993 Woodlands Blues Festival in Houston, Texas.

At the onset of his career in Port Arthur, Texas Lonnie Brooks, whose real name was Lee Baker, used the stage name “Guitar Junior.” In 1960 he gave up the name after moving to Chicago where it was already in use by Luther Johnson. Lee adopted Lonnie Brooks as a new stage name and went on to record his first album Broke And Hungry for Capitol Records in 1969.
