ALONG CAME SPIDER:

Spider John Koerner and Tony Glover perform in The Current studios (David Campbell, 7/04/10, Minnesota Public Radio)

Before Prince, Soul Asylum, Hukser Du and even Bob Dylan, Spider John Koerner and Tony Glover were making their legendary blend of folk and blues. True folk icons, Spider John and Tony Glover, along with Dave "Snaker" Ray, started playing around the beat coffeehouses of Dinkytown in the 1960's. Since their first album "Blues, Rags and Hollers," Koerner, Ray and Glover have inspired the likes of Bob Dylan, John Lennon, David Bowie and Bonnie Raitt (who covered "I Aint Blue" on her debut album).
