I listened to some heavy, almost evil blues today, early stuff, including a lot of Blind Willie Johnson. Man that guy can scare me in several ways.

I know it shouldn't, but sometimes the way a musician acts reflects on the music to me. I read the Rolling Stone article with John and I couldn't see him perform or hear his music quite the same way again. I just really have a deep respect for women and I don't think John does. That's all I'll say. ... It has made me not as ardent for his blues.

And I think his songwriting structure and an awful lot of his "pose" is very Jimi influenced, in a quasi-calculated way.  I think he could do more, move into a more original, authentic John in playing and writing. Maybe one without a reversed headstock. Smiley

Match, have you heard much T-Bone Walker?  Say the Black & White or Imperial recordings?  An amazing singer, and one of the most influential blues guitarists of all time.

I've learned so many different versions of Stormy Monday that I have no idea what is what; however, I am sad to say I own nothing by T-Bone Walker.  that is sad.  I will pick up some of his stuff for Xmas.

Here's a guy with blues that scares me.  There is nothing like this anymore.  Eric Clapton did a tribute album for Robert Johnson but I think he sanitized the sound and lost the edge on RJ's music.  That's about as close as anyone, I think, has tried to get.

This two cd set, long out of print, is usually found easily for five to ten bucks and is defiinitely worth the coin.





I actually prefer the Black&White recordings, but they're hard to find cheap.  I haven't looked to see if they're downloadable places, probably are. They swing a bit more in a jazzy way than the Imperials, which rock a bit harder. . . .

Either way this is where to start, with T-Bone in the forties and fifties. In some ways I think there would be no B.B. King if there had been no Aaron Thibedaux Walker.

Matchstikman reply #14, thank goodness for real musicians and singer song writers. The manufactured shlock of Boy Beiber and the Jonas Sisters through those voice synth's is so laughable! Thanks for this other Artist/musician you posted.

Lon, I think Jon M. has potential for his playing and writing and really moving me down the road, say, 10 to 15 more years of life's maturity and musician growing accumulation. I agree, he needs to respect women too. The airing of the Simpson stuff was, come on John?

I do appreciate the total class of Eric Johnson. Chops off the charts too, to say the least.
