The King Bees
Mannish Boys-Both Bowie's first and second groups, after Muddy tracks

Dr. Feelgood-Named after the piano player (the band, Roxette, are named after the Feelgoods track)

Am I allowed Pinetop Perkins? He was named Pinetop because he could play "Pinetop's Boogie Woogie" really well.

The Rising Sons (the 60's band with Taj Mahal and Ry Cooder) is most likely a homage to Son House.

The 44's out of LA - after the Howlin' Wolf song

Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble - after the Otis Rush song

A reference to "Ghost World"? I think all of us here at Weenie can relate to this.

I can't believe I forgot them. The first few singles were great.
