EX-LÍDER DA BANDA RED DEVILS, LESTER BUTLER FORMOU ESSA BOA BANDA CHAMADA "13" E GRAVOU ESSE ÚNICO E ÓTIMO ALBUM EM 1997!! BUTLER
MORREU EM 9 DE MAIO DE 1998, AOS 38 ANOS, DE OVERDOSE DE UMA LETAL COMBINAÇÃO DE HEROÍNA E COCAÍNA!! A SONORIDADE É UM BLUES ROCK COM
MUITA HARMÔNICA E GUITARRAS ROLANDO SOLTAS!! ELE ACREDITAVA QUE A GAITA DE BÔCA ERA UM INSTRUMENTO NATURAL PARA O BLUES E POR ISSO ABUSAVA DOS SOLOS DE GAITA!! BEM BACANA BEM LEGAL MESMO!! É UM BOM VENENO PRA QUEM GOSTA DE BLUES ROCK!!
 
After the breakup of The Red Devils, Butler also fronted the band, 13, releasing one self-titled record on Hightone Records in 1997. The original members of 13 included Kid Ramos on guitar, James Intveld on bass, and Johnny Morgan on drums. The recorded release of 13 on Hightone Records and produced by Warren Croyle features Stephen Hodges and Johnny Morgan on drums, Tom Leavey and James Moore on bass, Andy Kaulkin on keyboards, Alex Schultz, Smokey Hormel, Paul Bryant, and Doug Hamlin on guitar. Butler achieved his greatest fame in Europe, especially the Netherlands, where the Lester Butler Tribute Band still performs.
 
That album is reissued here with a bonus of three live cuts from 1997. Lester Butler believed that the harmonica was the natural lead instrument in a blues band so every track has tons of forceful driving amplified harp reeling out vibrant, intelligent solos time after time. He had a great blues voice too; a distinctive holler that works on slow numbers like his own Pray For Me and hard boppers like Elmore's So Mean To Me. Guitar isn't neglected though, as Alex Shultz matches Butler's harmonica with some great playing,  especially on tracks like Smokestack Lightnin' and Close To You.
 
Butler died of an overdose of heroin and cocaine on May 9, 1998, in Los Angeles at the age of 38. Two of his friends were convicted in his death of involuntary manslaughter.
