About Popa Chubby
Throughout a career dating back to 1994, he has been an unparalleled force on the guitar, and his boisterous, soulful playing has never been more powerful. An imposing figure with a shaved head, tattooed arms, a goatee and a playing style he describes as "the Stooges meets Buddy Guy, Motörhead meets Muddy Waters, and Jimi Hendrix meets Robert Johnson" Popa Chubby is an endearing character who has grown into a of the most famous figures within the genre.
Popa Chubby is his own man, for better or for worse. He reflects: "I live in a wild time, and that's where the inspiration comes from. There are problems, but the picture is much bigger than me and my situation. Everything is breaking down in the world. The lines are being redefined. We all have to need something."
