The fact that Lonnie Brooks have long reigned the blue circuit, is not only evident of his extraordinary masterwork in blending Classic with Modern Electric Blues, but also his sustainability in maintaining a space in the hearts of the modern music lover. His ability to remarkably conglomerate various genre of music and synchronize it for the ever changing audience, is still very importunate lure among the mob and at times makes the fan gasping for tickets.

Born on December 18, 1933 in Dubuisson, Louisiana to Baker, Sr., a cotton field laborer, and, Lillian Baker, a housewife. Brook's interest in music was fostered by none other than his Grandfather, "Joe the Banjo", who worked in a local circus apart from being a musician and a craftsman. He went to live with his father after completing his eight grade. It was in the year 1950 that he got married and finally relocated in Port Author, Texas.
