    Great photo! And I love the blues too! Was just listening to my man Albert Collins, matter of fact. :)

    Lesser? What kind of snob would say such a thing about the blues?

    The Blues and Country had a child, and they called it Rock and Roll.---Muddy Waters

    Everything is built on what came before. You can't have a building without a foundation.

    Ellmore James, Howlin Wolf, Hubert Sumlin, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters... But I go on to old soul music, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Etta James, Percy Sledge... And if I add a little of early rock'n'roll, as Chuck Berry stuff... Well that's the perfect cocktail for me...

    I love Soul and R&B, great music and so much fun to play. There are Blues snobs out there too though. When I encounter one that feels it necessary to give their opinion I ask if they’ve ever seen the categories at the Blues Music Awards.

    It's been a long way from Robert Johnson to Jimi Hendrix, but it's all the same old Blues. Muddy Waters, Keb' Mo', Aynsley Lister and Matt Schofield - so many shades of Blues, and I love quite a lot of them. The only thing I can't stand is when some old dudes play a boring 12-bar tune with uninspired solos and claim to be guardians of the Blues. But anyway, my band is also Blues-based, some Soul, a pinch of Jazz, some funky tunes - a lot of fun to play!

    Love the Blues. Without it, there would be no Rock & Roll.

    That’s where they are on Panthers. Just like Gibsons
