Business With Passion: Jimmy Dillon


Jimmy Dillon is a San Francisco-based guitarist, singer/songwriter, teacher, and playwright. Growing up listening to everything from early Beatles and Stones to Howlin’ Wolf, he has since toured and recorded extensively, backing up great artists (John Lee Hooker, Clarence Clemons, and Bruce Springsteen) as well as forming his own bands (The Edge and The Jimmy Dillon Band). In 1999 he wrote Ascension of the Blues, a musical history of the Blues (from Blues to Bop, Ragtime to Rap, and a whole lotta’ Rock n’ Roll) and has been performing/producing since then. He is most proud of creating Blue Star Music Camps where he and other touring musicians pass on their years of performing experience by teaching kids Rock & Roll.
