Bonnie Raitt was born on 8th November, 1949 to artistic parents. Her father was a famous star on Broadway whereas her mother was a pianist. Bonnie started to play guitar when she was twelve years old and chose to learn the bottleneck technique of guitar-playing. She went to the Radcliffe College, Harvard for her freshman year where she met Dick Waterman a famous blues manager. They soon became very good friends so when Waterman moved to Philadelphia, Bonnie went with him and that move changed her world.
Soon afterwards Bonnie was playing rhythm and blues and folk in the local Boston music clubs alongside some of the biggest names in blues like Mississippi Fred McDowell, Sippie Wallace and Howlin’ Wolf. She was introduced to these legends by Waterman and working with them opened her eyes to the power of music. In 1970, while doing a gig in New York she was spotted by a correspondent from the Newsweek magazine.

The album became a rage and topped charts around the country. The success of the album earned Bonnie Raitt multiple Grammys and turned her into a phenomenon. Three more Grammys followed with release and subsequent success of her next album Luck of the Draw that has sold well over eight million copies in the U.S. only.
