Muddy Water's South Side Chicago home is in danger of being
demolished. The house, that was once the hub of Chicago blues, was deemed by
the City of Chicago as "dangerous", with windows, porch, doors, and
stairway in need of proper maintenance. A letter, dated January 11th, is the
first step in the court order that would allow the demolition of the home.
The South Side home is not just a house; it is an American
music LANDMARK. If the walls could talk they could tell stories about legendary
jams featuring Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Chuck Berry, Otis Spann, Willie "Big
Eyes" Smith, James Cotton, and countless others.
It should be noted that the property is currently owned by descendent
of Muddy Waters. This petition was not started by the owners. We wish to see
the property operated as a 501(c)(3) museum and educational facility.
