In a radio interview about two years ago, Charlie Sayles (one of the
best blues harp players alive IMHO and a dear friend) was asked how he
got into blues.  Charlie said the first "real" blues he heard was BB
King but when he got back from Viet Nam he observed that "the Stones is
blues.  Dylan is blues."  I am not saying I agree or disagree with
Charlie, just quoting him.
