Willie Nix, born 1922 in Memphis, TN, started tap dancing as a child and in the 40’s worked as both dancer and comedian in a number of variety shows. He recorded for Memphis and Chicago labels (RPM, Sun, Chess and Chance) but never saw the success he definitely deserved.
Willie Nix played with such Blues greats as B. B. King, Joe Hill, Elmore Morris and Sonny Boy Williamson. He played the drums and guitar.
His trademark driving beat tunes and witty lyrics can be found on numerous compilation albums.
