Although the name of the band was certainly inspired by Muddy Waters, it was by no means a purist blues band. Listening back, there's a real hodge-podge of influences ranging from prog, hard rock, jazz-rock and symphonic rock plus some blues, soul and funk. We were young and knew no boundaries. Even though the results were far from flawless, I don't think I ever had as much fun playing in a band as I did back then.
