Jim O'Neal and Amy Van Singel were co-founders publishers, and editors of Living Blues magazine from 1970-87. In this capacity, they interviewed many of the most famous blues musicians on the Chicago and international scene. The magazine helped launch and sustain the blues revival, focusing on living bluesmen, as opposed to more scholarly journals that focused on blues history. O'Neill and Van Singel live in Kansas City, Missouri.
"Carefully edited and conscientiously presented...these interviews read like elegant memoirs." -- Peter Guralnick, author of Last Train to Memphis
