These blues all-stars all have the blues

Incredible line up, doing some really great music

WHAT THE HELL

Boy, I never get tired of seeing giants of American blues on German TV. I don’t know what our networks were showing at the time — probably Pat Boone and Connie Francis — but isn’t it wild that the Germans were feasting on the best of the best: T. Bone Walker, Willie Dixon, Memphis Slim, and Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee? Not to mention Helen Humes and her premium pipes.

It sounds so familiar because rock n’ roll never stopped borrowing from these guys. Without them, there’d be no Hootie & the Blowfish…

Never mind. Forget I said that.
