$5 Cover

Bang’s musical journey began in his native Chicago. He was born in the Austin neighborhood into a music-loving household where everybody from Lou Rawls to the Village People shared time on the family’s turntable. Bang, whose actual surname is Blinkal, saw his first live music at the lounge where his mother waitressed. His father, a Chicago police officer, was initially disapproving of his son’s interest in playing guitar. But Bang persevered, and at age 16 bought a cheap six-string and amp that he was only allowed to play in the garage.
It was rock — everything from AC/DC to Metallica to Z.Z. Top — that caught his interest as a budding guitarist. But when Bang turned 21, he made his first visits to Chicago’s blues clubs, where he began to grasp that the genre provided the musical bedrock of his favorite artists. He also got a copy of the Johnny Copeland, Albert Collins and Robert Cray album, Showdown!, and was inspired by the furious interplay of the three blues guitar aces.
