Milton Roosevelt Hopkins was born in Houston’s Fifth Ward on January 30, 1934. His first musical influence was a local gospel quartet, in particular, and numerous bands in his neighborhood in Trinity Gardens. He picked up an old guitar that had 4 rusty strings and was hanging on a nail on the back porch. It wasn’t long before he formed a band with other aspiring neighborhood musicians. One of the first gigs found Johnny “Guitar Watson” sitting in. This would be the beginning of a career that led Milton to play with many great Blues, R & B and Jazz artists.
