|Ron Hacker: Bio|
|Ron Hacker has been on the San Francisco music scene for more than 25 years. And like teeth on a hacksaw's blade, he cuts through the Blues like few others can.|
|Ron first heard the blues while incarcerated at a juvenile detention center in Indianapolis in the late '50's. The Chicago sounds of Elmore James, Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf blaring out of the counselors' radios instantly hooked Ron on this soulful music.
After teaching himself to play guitar, Ron met the late Yank Rachell, famous partner of Sleepy John Estes. Yank trained Ron on the finer points of Delta Blues, and they became life-long friends in the process.
