    The Wolf

    I was just kicking back listen to some Holwin' Wolf. He was six foot six inches of powerful blues music.  Smokestack Lightening, Moaning at Midnight, How Many More Years, Going Down Slow and many more.  He was one of the best to ever sing blues music.  He had power and a deep...

    I had some music industry people take me to a

    blues club the other night, hopefully to watch and listen. After a couple of hours one of the guys offered me his guitar while he took a break. I don't play regularly any more so I was alittle rusty but it came back. I played for over a hour with the group. I'm suprised...

    It just does something to you in here (touching

    heart) doesn't it? :) I don't know where my love comes from. I wasn't born or raised in a "blues mecca" at all. You barely, if ever, hear "true blues" on the radio by me..unless you wanna count Clapton, Cream, Stevie Ray and Hendrix..but Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Robert...

    Willie Mae "Big Moma" Thornton recorded the definitive version of Hound Dog in 1952. As the song's writers Leiber and Stroller said: The song was about a woman telling off a man who was trying to pimp her.  The song didn't make any sense when Elvis sang it.  Big Moma's version...

    Love In Vain

    This is the first Robert Johnson song I ever heard. It was on the Rolling Stones' live album: Get Your Ya Yas out.  Then I found out it was by this shadowy blues legend, Robert Johnson.  This version by Eric Clapton is true to the original.  Eric has certainly earned is right...
