20 years old... DAMN! Talk about an old soul. Thanks for sharing. I'll have to look out for him when he inevitably finds his way to NOLA.

Rolling Stone is a mere shadow of what it once was.

 

John Mayall.

 

Prince I find hard to mix into the blues. Fleetwood Mac would have been a better option to compare newer blues. The old blues I don't think many are doing anymore... hard to replicate that sound and feeling.

With due respect,T/C...for you to bring some of those talents seems a bit odd if you didn't mention John Lee Hooker ...

I know, but you can't mention everyone I guess. Hooker in a way is the last of the old blues guard imo. 

 

Savoy Brown.

The old blues sound has been gone for decades... unless you're listening to 30's, 40's music from way back. What we hear now is watered down, basically "I'm trying to sound like those guys with an instrument made post 1980" or so.

Hm. Not sure I agree.

I don’t agree at all but that is your opinion 

 

There are hundreds of styles of different blues but the roots is still alive ... rare but still alive if you know where to look

There was no electricity involved with the original blues masters...

 

Oh I agree that the blues "type" of sound is still around but the original blues masters are long gone. I'll take what I can get nowadays... which is usually 60's and up on vinyl. Youtube has a lot of clips of the true blues men too.

Because I live 500 miles from the Tralf. Not to mention nursing a knee replacement. He's coming through New England in September.

We'll be seeing Joe Bonamassa in Christchurch in a couple weeks, which I'm really looking forward to.

 

Good concerts are far and few down here, so thought I'd take the chance on going to this one.  To be honest, I don't know much at all of his music, but some friends have shared some really impressive concert videos of his.

 

Has anyone here seen him before?
