Duster Bennett

Duster Bennett was a popular one man blues band on the Lanch in the early 1970's

Anthony "Duster" Bennett (23 September 1946 – 26 March 1976) was a British bluessinger and musician.
Based around London, his first album Smiling Like I'm Happy saw him playing as a one-man band, playing a bass drum with his foot and blowing a harmonica on a rack while strumming a 1952 Les Paul Goldtop guitar given to him in 1968 by Peter Green. Backed by his girlfriend Stella Sutton and the original Fleetwood Macon three tracks, the album was well received. He remained popular on the local blues club scene until his death in a car crash in 1976. Read more on Wiki
