The pen name of American blues musician [a=Little Walter] - usually as the writing credit '[b]W. Jacobs[/b]'.

[b]Born:[/b] 1 May 1930, Marksville, Louisiana and raised in Rapides Parish, Louisiana, USA.

Jacobs had become an alcoholic toward the end of his life. This, coupled with a short temper regularly led to bar room fights and confrontations with the Law. He died in his sleep, as a result of coronary thrombosis - possibly compounded by blows from a minor fight some 12-hours earlier in a Chicago bar and previous altercations.
