"I used to walk down the street when I first started playing, and I was humming, kind of humming little riffs. And I thought, man, if I could play that it would be very cool. To play what I'm humming. So instead of copying stuff off records, I would sing or hum into a boom box and then I would copy myself humming on the harmonica on the playback.
"That really made it a lot easier for me to be myself. My influences are always going to be obvious. I always wanted to have the musical command of Little Walter, but in my own way. And that was one way that I got that going." - Kim Wilson of clients The Fabulous Thunderbirds
