Born McKinley Morganfield, Muddy Waters (1915-1983) became the king of the Age of Postwar Blues with his flair for transforming traditional Delta blues into electric blues. In 1948, he began recording a string of Chicago blues hits, including "Rolling Stone," inspiration for Bob Dylan and Mick Jagger.
