Born John Len Chatman, blues legend Memphis Slim was a pianist, singer, and composer who cut over 500 recordings and released more than 40 albums in his lifetime. His most famous song, "Every Day I Have the Blues" has been the subject of countless covers, most notably by Count Basie and B.B. King, who helped establish the song as a blues standard. In 1986, two years before his death, France named Slim a Commander in the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, and Slim was posthumously inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 1989.
