The blues has always been a hybrid, I guess the original blues has been done
since before Robert Johnson, because he changed it too. Change is inevitable,
if something doesn't change, it stagnates. That doesn't always mean that the
change is for the better. Blues is like rust, forever creeping along and
permiating, it never sleeps.
