 One wonders...at least this one wonders....why is it that there are so

money, then it would only make sense that black artists would have
migrated into the rock and country genres, where there has long been
more money to be made than in the blues genre. That has not happened.
Jimi and Mr Pride. Ray Charles took a few stabs at the country genre
in the 60s. There you have it.
