My first post in about 3 years ..
Well no doubt the purists will scream bloody murder. but my sentiment is,
it's a good
thang. Any art form I think needs to expand to remain vital and
appeal to a new
generation. Too many younger black folks, ahim pardon the non-peece term
here, have been driven away from the BLUES. now, whether that's because
they consider it to be just the same old same old or they don't understand
it I don't know either Way it's a shame!!
And BtW Howdy Zellers.
Best Of It
