Mick Fleetwood To Mentor Blind Blues Singer

Tuesday, March 26th 2013 12:00

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.
