Watermelon Slim and the Truckers have been playing for a long time. Watermelon Slim is a bluesman and an amazing storyteller. He has been many things in his life, Vietnam war veteran, truck driver, forklift operator, saw miller (where he lost a partial finger), firewood salesman, collection agent, funeral officiator, and at times a small-time criminal. Watermelon Slim also has two undergrad and a master’s degree, started a family, painted art, and joined Mensa, the social networking group reserved for members with certified genius IQs. When he’s not on tour Slim loves to fish and garden.
