Historic Blues Photos by Doug Fulton

The great blues photographs of Doug Fulton have become legendary in their spectacular portraiture of many of the greatest legends of the blues. Doug and Bob were dear friends and Bob would always stay at Doug and Anna’s (Anna is Doug’s beautiful and brilliant wife) every time he would gig or visit in Tucson. Doug passed away in 1996 but his legend lives on through his great body of work. Here are a collection of some of Doug’s masterpieces courtesy of Anna. Additional examples of Doug’s work are on display at the Bob’s nightclub, the Rhythm Room.
