Paul Klinefelter

As a young bass guitarist growing up in the Philadelphia area in the early sixties, Paul Klinefelter was an avid fan of the English wave of blues/rock bands of the time. Gradually, he became interested in the American originators of that music, such as the great bluesmen Muddy Waters and B.B. King. After briefly attending art school in 1969, Paul’s musical impulses eventually proved stronger, and he struck out on a three year stint with Jim McCarthy and Soul, a hard-driving Chicago blues band. Around this time, he was also exposed to jazz, listening to WRTI during band breaks at the West Philadelphia League of Republican Voters, a late-night private club where the focus was more on drinking than politics.
