Listen:

Muddy Waters dealt in raw attitude; a real blues player - no pomp or sell, just swampy sounding grit that goes all the way to the bone.

Tunes like “Rollin' Stone” find Waters hitting the one-beat right on the nose every time. And he hits that beat with such cut and disdain—both vocally and with his guitar—that you feel the hurt coming right at you through the speakers.
