Mighty Joe Young

Mighty Joe (Joseph) Young Jr. was born in Shreveport, Louisiana in 1927.  He moved to Milwaukee, WI in the mid 40’s and began his music career in the 1950’s, leading him to Chicago, IL. Mighty Joe’s Chicago hang-out during the '70s and '80s was “Wise Fools Pub.”  “Turning Point” was recorded on Mighty Joe’s “Live at the Wise Fools Pub” LP in 1990 and was used in the feature film “Thief” in 1981. In 1986, Mighty Joe began work on album, “Mighty Man” released in 1997.  Mighty Joe underwent surgery on a pinched nerve in his neck and developed numbness in his fingers, which affected his ability to play guitar. In 1998, he underwent further surgery in an attempt to regain feeling in his fingers. Mighty Joe died on March 24, 1999 after developing pneumonia.
