Jyrki "Muddy" Manninen is a Finnish guitarist, best known for playing with Wishbone Ash.[1]

Musical career[edit]

Manninen's first release was through Love Records, which he recorded in 1979 with the Red House Blues Band. In the 1980s, Manninen played in bands supporting bands such as Status Quo and releasing albums on the Atlantic label. It was in this period that he met (and played with) guitarist Ben Granfelt. Following Granfelt's departure from Wishbone Ash in 2004, Manninen joined the group and produced the studio album Clan Destiny.[2]
