Sweet! Freddie King was one legend I overlooked. Probably quite a few more. :)
You Got Barbecue Back There!?!?!?!
I don't know if this counts, but Lonnie Mack is great, so here you go haha (also a big influence on SRV)
I had Blue cheese on my steak, if that counts?
You bet it does
Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!
It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.
Couldn't find a "BLUE CHEESE" blouse tune. I'd I had any talent, I'd write one... it would probably start like this.
I got the blue cheese blues...cause it fell down on my shoes.

Mama done told me were out of it...and I'm cryin' at the news.
12 bar blues in E.
since there are a lot of Es in cheese.
I know ... cheesy joke.
Made my head explode. There's de brie everywhere.
You gouda just had some of the blues
No signing day blues. Happy for who we got......feeling more like Muddy Waters "I'm a Man".
Never had luck embedding
....anyone help me out with Muddy Waters- Electric Mud "I'm a man"?
Is this what you're looking for
Here you go - are you on your phone or computer?
Thanks Linga. On my phone and I'm not very good at links, images or the like. Thanks again.
No problem - here to help.
Enjoy the evening
We need more of these...not a huge fan of theirs, but I do like this one.
Great effort, good intentions, terrible message.
We have the mother fucking 2nd ranked recruiting class in the nation. Anyone who doesn't want to celebrate can go fucking pound sand!
"Tina, you fat lard, come get some DINNER!... Tina, eat. Food. Eat the FOOD!"
But tell us how you really feel. And don't hold back.
Sorry. This is a great post.
I shouldn't be negative about it. The negativity stems from the deluge of threads decrying our defeat as the #2 class.
I agree 100%. I said a lot of people have the blues but I don't. I think our class is excellent. I was thinking anout how many people were so down about it, so I used it for a lead in. Can't wait to see the guys on the field!
Yep! I’m loving it, like McDonalds. It’s christmas, I’m meeting some friends for our annual trip to Gatsbys, drinking heavily, and not working until Tuesday. Life’s good!
Earle for MOD in 16', it'll be the last best thing to ever happen to him.
I'll bet your friends are idiots. Just a hunch.
Not everyone can be smart on paper.
If you continue to think what you always thought, you will continue to get what you always got. #AlumforStaff
Time to pull out the biggest of the big dogs. I think this one is about recruitin'
"got to keep on movin"
you don't got to be Stonewall Jackson to know you don't want to fight in a basement
Robert Johnson actually recorded most of his songs right here in San Antonio. The San Antonio Blues association does a Robert Johnson event. This year I was out of town. Going to hit it up next year. More on Robert Johnson in a future post.
I'm just bummed I'm still at work right now... while not perfect I'm thrilled with the recruits OSU signed and have my fingers crossed for a couple big names in the new year.
Yes, I'm one of those pain in the ass optimistic folk.
"Football is, after all, a wonderful way to get rid of your aggressions without going to jail for it." Woody Hayes
Also an optimist--I am thrilled for who we signed. Not worried about those we didn't. Like you, hoping for a few more. As for those folks out there we're waiting for--let's do it!
The blues about this class? I think this is one of the best class of recruits ever. Urban is not done yet. How about some happy celebratory tunes Buckeye fans?
This is how I personally feel about this class. (Different version of Stubzzz post below)
And this is us for the foreseeable future, by another of my favorites.
I don't know what we're talking about, but I just want to up vote you for Gary Moore. That man is a legend who deserved so much more fame, at least in the U.S. Thin Lizzy might be my favorite classic rock band. Here's another video of his solo blues stuff. I'm not very easily impressed when it comes to guitar playing, but this has got to be the greatest single electric guitar performance I've ever seen.
Is that the famous Les Paul - Peter Green?
You win with people
I love me some Gary Moore, even when I'm tired...
No Blues permitted here....Michigan Sucks!
I love the blues--personally have no blues about our class, and yes, Michigan still sucks!
Sometimes I let others do the talking for me. Some good talk within, and playing.
Yeah I hear ya - I was a little confused why you didn't post a Dead vid with the blues.
Sometimes I expand my horizons
Maybe your best post ever. Outstanding. So is this, Pig getting it on, and talkin
Not my best
Probably my worst
Just here to help those less fortunate LOL
" ... poor man wanna be rich, rich man wanna be king, and a king ain't satisfied 'til he rules everything ..." - The Boss
An underappreciated (except by his peers) talent.
Hadn't heard of Night Horse. Going to have to check them out! Thanks!
Not complete with this guy
The Browns are no longer the worst franchise in all of professional sport.
Cool thread, thank you.
One of my favorite festivals in NOLA is the BBQ and Blues festival.
All I can offer is perhaps I'll have a Pabst Blue Ribbon.
If all you got is Pabst Blue Ribbon - you're gonna need to broaden that perspective. LOL
Did you check it out this year? Saw Samantha Fish was there (among many others).
Missed it this year, weather.
I am an Abita Man. The brewery is probably 5 miles from my house. I support my local brewery and the their local brew pub. The pub is right along the bike path called the Tammany Trace. They just don't make anything blue, although they do made Purple Haze.
I lived in San Antonio for a year and a half, did not know about that festival.
See the thread is still growing, long live the blues.
They sell Abita here. I get it sometimes. My wife was born and raised in New Orleans. That purple haze is strong! The Robert Johnson celebration is not really a festival, although i wish it was. It's pretty small. Wish I lived near New Orleans. I'd get my blues fill for sure--not to mention the food--but that's another topic! ;)

Legendary. Glad he finally started to get his due later in his life.
One of my favorites...
Forgot about Jeff Beck. The man can play!
try this one of BB&A. Prefer it over the other one. IIRC, interesting story about the release of the two
Good stuff. I like interesting stories...
+1 Lamp, for the BBA tune!
I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.
I've seen them three or four times. Love their stuff. I heard Dusty Gibbons plays light gauge strings and uses a peso instead of a pick to get his unique sound.
Old school ZZ Top.
One from a friend of mine. have to give him a plug....
Sounds great! I'll have to check him out more.
I love Johnny Winter. That man could play!
Can't talk about the Blues without mentioning JJ Cale...
One final favorite ...
I love Mark Knopfler's sound!
so unique. absolutely loved their first album. Still in my regular rotation all these years later.
Absolutely! When the first album came out, I thought it sounded like a mix of Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan. I also love the album Love over Gold. Especially this one.
The blues really helped Elvis get rolling. He redid a lot of old blues numbers. Here's one.
I was thinking of making this a recurring thing, kind of like TIMH, introducing old and new blues music on a biweekly or monthly basis if anybody is interested.
Going to see Shemekia at Blues Alley tonight. Lady can belt them out.
I would like a bourbon.
Awesome! At some point I plan on doing a segment on female blues singers. There have been a lot of great ones, and still are. Enjoy the show!
Here is one to kick it off...
Show was awesome. She is the daughter of Blues HOF member Johnnie “Clyde” Copeland. http://www.houstonchronicle.com/local/gray-matters/article/Johnny-Copela...
She did a Christmas song from her 2015 album that was fun. https://g.co/kgs/221PRu
Finished up with her first big hit, afaik, It’s 2 am https://youtu.be/fpYZF1az_gs
Love it. Saw John Mayer in concert. He is a player. He said one of his biggest influences was Stevie Ray Vaughan. I loved that after he made some money being popular, he went back to his roots and did a blues album with the John Mayer Trio.
Still kicking myself that I never saw BB live.
Yup. Me, too. Love what he's doing now. He sure can play.
I saw BB in Columbus at the Newport.
Lightnin Hopkins is another legend. Hadnt heard of R. L. Burnside, but sounds like another for my playlist. Thanks!
I'll be totally honest-there are those stereotype blues musicians that play the same damn scales and trot out the same old tropes for middle aged white dudes-guys like John Lee Hooker and Eric Clapton when he is in blues mode. Those guys don't much interest me. On the other hand, there are guys like Hound Dog Taylor, Jon Spencer, and RL Burnside that put their own spin of crazy on the blues and take the music some where interplanterary..........
There are a lot of new blues musicians that are putting their stamp on the blues. Sometimes traditional blues can seem stale. I still like it though--maybe I just appreciate the genre they started. I like to listen to the guitar solos guys like Clapton throw in on those songs. I really prefer a mix of blues and rock. The funky way Hound Dog plays is cool, and John Cooper above introduced me to R. L. Burnside. He's on my playlist now. It's always good for somebody to break out of the mold so it doesn't all sound the same.
I love the Bucks as much as anyone, but folks need some real help if they actually have the blues over recruiting!
I agree with you. Although there was a ton of moaning the last few days (for the #2 class with more to come!), I really just used it as an excuse to do this blues topic. ;)
Yeah I knew you were a bit tongue in cheek, but I think some are actually taking it hard
Way too hard!
Alvin Lee and George Harrison:
Thanks! Love Alvin Lee. Many folks don't know Peter Green started Fleetwood Mac as a blues band.
The Allman Bros is one of my all-time favorite bands. I've seen them many times. I think their live at Fillmore East album is one of the best live records ever made.
Late in, adding some Hill Country Blues, via Junior Kimbrough:
I had to run away high, so I wouldn't come home low...
