Born Walter Travis Price, 2 August 1914, Gonzales, Texas Now aged 93, singer / pianist Big Walter Price must be one of the oldest blues artists alive. Though he never had a national hit, he is often referred to as a blues legend. Walter himself does not see himself exclusively as a blues singer, he considers himself more versatile than that. Walter Price was brought up by his aunt, who would beat him when he didn't pick enough cotton. He describes his childhood in Gonzales as "horrible". Around the age of eleven, he moved to San Antonio and has lived in big cities ever since.
