Vince Bellon is the frontman of Mean Red Spyder. They play traditional blues; from acoustic delta, hill country, to hard rocking Chicago and Texas blues. They rock it!
From washingtontimes.com: Mean Red Spider is trying to bring the blues’ roots back into public consciousness.
Bellon, 52, has a musical taste wide enough to accommodate Miles Davis and the Sex Pistols.
Blues music is at his core, though. From the genre’s 1900s foot-stomping Mississippi Delta beginnings with Son House and Willie Brown, to its electric migration to Chicago’s clubs by Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters.
“It’s music that people may not be familiar with, even if they know what it spawned - Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton,” Bellon said. “When we have an audience that’s not as familiar, we try to find some way to convert them, and make them interested. Not so much in us, but in the music. Live blues is the purest form of American music.”
Growing up in Draper, Utah, Bellon’s passion for the music came after hearing Jimmy Page on Led Zeppelin’s 1975 recording of “In My Time of Dying.”
