Anybody else notice that in blues, the spelling of a name that normally ends
in a letter "y" in the rest of the world, gets changed to an "ie" in the
blues world.  Examples (there are so many):

            Willie Dixon
            Freddie King
            Jimmie Vaughan
            Sippie Wallace
            Rickie Miller


Z'up widdat, anyway?  ;-)
