"Well, this is a story,
A story ain't never been told.
You know the Blues got pregnant
And they named the baby
Rock and Roll"
(the blues had a baby and they named it rock and roll- McKinley Morganfield (Muddy Waters)/ Brownie McGhee)
back in january i had grand illusions of starting a blues series based on a book i have which is a collection of classic blues lyrics. 'squeeze my lemon' by randy poe. amazing stuff.
while watching this one of the common themes of what the british (and white) musicians that backed the legends on stage all saying that when these guys came into town to do a show if there was a rehersal, which usually there wasn't, it would be them playing a few bars on harmonica, etc. and being told 'yeh, thats good. see ya'll tomorrow'.
its a feeling.
