I got an email this morning from the Morganfield Foundation in Chicago. The group was established to try to save legendary bluesman Muddy Waters’ home on the South Side of Chicago. The home’s located at 4339 S. Lake Park Avenue in Chicago, and the historical significance of the home is what’s the driving force to raise the funds necessary to save the building.
