what do you like about the Blues? (i'm talkin about the music, of course) What artists are you most fond of? What was the first Blues musician you listened to? My biggest influence on blues was my father. I would always listen to it with him when ever he played the radio or a record. Back then I use to hate it, but now, I'm fascinated by it. I almost like it as much as the music of Coachella. Currently though, I've been seeing a lot of Blues artists that just gets me more interested into the blues. In January, I saw one of Buddy Guy's shows at Legends in Chicago that was pretty damn good, and later that month I saw Dr. John, who is pretty much the coolest and blackest old white man alive. And this weekend I'll be seeing Taj Mahal. What are your thoughts? Do you all dig blues?
