Michael Katon

~ Person


Michael Katon is an American blues-rock guitarist and vocalist. He grew up in Ypsilanti, Michigan, USA, in a musical family where he was early inspired to take up the guitar.

His album Rip It Hard continued in the traditional blues-boogie vein, and while, like many blues men, major commercial success evades Katon, he remains a respected guitarist in the field. He released a live album in 1997.

Valerie Potter of Metal Hammer said " Michael Katon plays some of the loudest, toughest, meanest rock & blues on the planet!". Living Blues also said of Katon: "Katon is a virtuoso guitar player with his roots in the right place...[his] sound is a blazing blend of electric blues and roadhouse boogie".

In June 2014, he was voted into the Michigan Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
