John Brim (April 10, 1922 — October 1, 2003) was a Chicago blues guitarist, songwriter and blues harp player. He wrote and recorded the original « Ice Cream Man » that David Lee Roth covered on Diamond Dave, and Van Halen also covered on their first album.[1] « Ice Cream Man » was also covered by Martin Sexton on his 2001 live double album, Live Wide Open.

Brim picked up his early guitar licks from the gramophone records of Tampa Red and Big Bill Broonzy, before venturing first to Indianapolis in 1941 and Chicago four years later.[1] He met his wife Grace in 1947; fortuitously, she was a capable drummer and harmonica player who played on several of Brim’s records.[1] She was also the vocalist on a 1950 single for the Detroit based Fortune Records, that signaled the beginning of Brim’s discography.

Brim recorded for Random Records, J.O.B. Records, Parrot Records (the socially aware « Tough Times »), and Chess Records (« Rattlesnake, » his answer to Big Mama Thornton’s « Hound Dog » was pulled from the shelves by Chess for fear of a plagiarism lawsuit).[1] All of his 1950s recordings for the Chess label were later included on the compilation LP/CD « Whose Muddy Shoes » (which also included the few recordings Elmore James made for the label; because they share this LP/CD, it has sometimes been assumed that they performed or recorded together, but this is not the case.
