The Mississippi-born Campbell moved to Chicago as a boy in the mid-’40s; he honed his skills on the city’s west side in the company of such blues luminaries as Magic Sam, Otis Rush, and Koko Taylor. After building a reputation on both the bell-like tone of his bright red guitar and his flamboyantly coifed hair, he began recording solo albums in the ’70s.
