    For the past day I’ve been listening to Kenny Wayne on Sirius introducing songs (mostly covers, if not all) from his new CD. His label has only put out teasers so far.


    And a couple songs from some of the artists listed in the post above,……

    This is a tad off Eric Clapton's newest, a tribute to JJ Cale.

    This song needs a harmony vocal back up track. In fact crying for one.

    The old version is better..

    Ah, Jimi Hendrix.
    I could tell you some stories about what went on when I listened to this tune with like-minded people, many times, years ago, but I wont...
    If I had to pick a favourite Jimi tune, my favourite.

    the road has become unbearable

    When Graeme Thomson sent us his interview with Eric Clapton, it was not, to be honest, quite what we expected. We anticipated a poignant chat about Clapton’s old friend JJ Cale, to tie in with the forthcoming tribute album, “The Breeze”. As it transpired, though, the album was just a jumping-off point for one of the most unexpected and revealing Clapton pieces most of us can remember.

    Closing in on 70, Clapton ended up reflecting on his messy past, his stable present, and a future which could see him retiring a lot sooner than most of us would have expected. There was talk of diminishing powers, Cream reunions and a growing reluctance to tour. “JJ said, ‘When I turn 70 I’m unofficially retired,’” Clapton told Graeme. “I think what I’ll allow myself to do, within reason, is carry on recording in the studio, but the road has become unbearable.”

    Eric Clapton

    Johnny Winter Has Passed Away


    Johnny Dawson Winter III has passed away. He was 70. ”Texas blues icon Johnny Winter has passed away on July 16th, 2014, in his hotel room in Zurich, Switzerland,” read an official email from Winter’s PR company, Kid Logic Media. “His Wife, family and badnmates are all saddened by the loss of one of the world’s finest guitarists.”

    The email promised an official statement at the appropriate time.

    Winter and his brother, Edgar were raised in a musical family, with his roots firmly planted in the Mississippi delta — his father was the mayor of Leland, Mississippi, and Winter was recently honored with a Blues Trail Marker. From before his teens, Winter was playing and recording, even sitting in with the biggest blues legends of the day and in history, including Muddy Waters and BB King. In 1968, he released his first album, The Progressive Blues Experiment, and after a now-famous performance at The Fillmore East, he was signed to Columbia Records with what was reported to be the largest advance ever made to an artist.

    After his mammoth deal, Johnny immediately laid out the blueprint for his fresh take on classic blues, according to his official biography, which was a prime combination for the legions of fans just discovering the blues through the likes of Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton. His first album with Columbia was Johnny Winter, with Willie Dixon playing stand up bass. Winter continued to gain widespread critical acclaim with his innovative blues stylings and in 1970, Winter released his commercially acclaimed ”Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo”, before struggling with heroin addiction for several years, seeking treatment, and emerging with a renewed lease on life.

    He made a successful comeback, culminating in what Winter described to American Blues Scene Magazine as the “highlight of my life” when, after the closing of Chess Records, he brought Muddy Waters to the studio to record what would widely become known as the bluesman‘s comeback record, Hard Again. In the album, Winter performed most of the guitar work, while Muddy sang. Winter would go on to produce several Grammy-winning albums for Muddy before the bluesman’s death in 1983.

    Winter earned several Grammy nominations for his searing, scorching slide guitar work, and was inducted into the Blues Foundation’s Blues Hall of Fame in 2003, and was one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s 100 Greatest Guitar Players of All Time. “I’m not a rock n roller,” Winter told American Blues Scene. “I’m a bluesman.” From his earliest childhood in the Mississippi Delta and Beaumont, Texas to his last breath, touring on the road, Winter truly lived up to that statement in every sense of the word.

    If you’re a Blues fan and you enjoy SRV,...vote.


    Whether you like, love or hate the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame , you have a chance participate in the selection process for the 2015 inductees and help get more blues in there. Stevie Ray Vaughn is currently in second place behind Nine Inch Nails, which we’re sure they are a fine band but we are talking about Stevie here. There is no possible way they should be ahead of him….BLUES FANS ACTIVATE! Vote HERE now

    Legends run deep when memories of Stevie Ray Vaughan (1954-1990) are invoked. David Bowie said, after seeing the 28-year-old Dallas blues guitar sensation for the first time at Montreux in 1982: “SRV completely floored me. I probably hadn’t been so gung-ho about a guitar player since seeing Jeff Beck in the early 60s.” Famed music man Jerry Wexler arranged for Vaughan’s big-time debut at Montreux (which led to him playing on Bowie’s global Number One hit “Let’s Dance”). Equally famed John Hammond led Vaughan to Epic Records. The studio and live LPs released during the last seven years of his life etched SRV into Stratocaster immortality and influenced the next generation of blues guitarists. From the opening onslaught of “Love Struck Baby,” “Pride And Joy,” and “Texas Flood” on his first LP, it was clear that Vaughan belonged in the highest ranks of guitar greats. His devotion to Jimi Hendrix emerged on his second LP, with a blistering cover of “Voodoo Child (Slight Return).” It turned into a staple of nearly every SRV show, along with Hendrix’s “Little Wing.” Vaughan laid out his dedication to the great masters for all to see, especially Guitar Slim (“The Things (That) I Used To Do”) and Rock And Roll Hall Of Famers Buddy Guy (“Mary Had A Little Lamb”), Freddie King (“Hide Away”) and Albert King (“Blues At Sunrise”). During his short-lived career, Vaughan also recorded show-stopping collaborations with B.B. King, Jeff Beck, Paul Butterfield, Dick Dale, Lonnie Mack, Albert Collins and many others.

    Here’s where things stood today after I voted:

    Just got back from a Tommy Castro and the Pain Killers concert. It was a good show and he played many songs from his latest CD, The Devil You Know.

    He opened the concert with Make it Back to Memphis

    I do believe if there were a much much older group of internet users they would rate better.

    The 57th Annual Grammy Awards Nominees were listed a couple weeks ago and I forgot to list the Best Blues Album, until Chittychangchang’s nice post of Little Walter.


    I do hope it’s Step Back (Johnny Winter)
