Mick Fleetwood To Mentor Blind Blues Singer
20 year-old musician discovered on YouTube.
Mick Fleetwood has offered the chance of a lifetime to a young blues singer, who he came across while browsing on YouTube.
Dan Owen, 20, was left partially blind as a teenager after a piece of wood hit his eye during his carpentry apprenticeship - shattering his dreams of being a guitar maker. Feeling depressed, he turned to blues music, and a video of him covering Bob Dylan's "The Ballad Of Hollis Brown" recieved over 400,000 hits; Fleetwood's among them.
Owen will tour with ZZ Top later this year, with Fleetwood offering to mentor his career following his 2013 live engagements.
