Brandon Mendenhall : Rocking Out With Cerebral Palsy
Brandon Mendenhall had no mobility in his left hand and limited movement on his left side. The idea of the teenager playing guitar was crazy to pretty much everyone, including the doctors who said that playing an instrument would mean only frustration and heartbreak. Born with cerebral palsy, Mendenhall had heard discouragement like this many times before. "They were trying to protect me," Mendenhall said, "But, it was in my heart. It was what I wanted to do." As a Korn fan, Mendenhall had learned that one of his musical heroes, James "Munky" Shaffer, started playing guitar while rehabilitating his left hand after an ATV accident took the tip of his index finger. "That gave me the ammunition to tell my grandparents, 'If this guy can overcome that, then I can do it.' After a while, my grandmother relented and loaned me $1,000. I bought an Ibanez 7-string RG-7620 from Musician's Friend and hid it from my grandfather for two months," Brandon said.

The Great Modern Blues Artists
As rich in talent as the early blues era was, artists like Charley Patton, Robert Johnson and Son House set the stage for bluesmen in the 1940s and '50s to succeed commercially, thus bringing the blues to a mass audience.
