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.

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!

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!

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.

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?

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.

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.

Did you check it out this year? Saw Samantha Fish was there (among many others).

jmmysms's picture

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.

JMMYSMS

HS
Sanantonefan's picture

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! ;)

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.

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.

Lightnin Hopkins is another legend. Hadnt heard of R. L. Burnside, but sounds like another for my playlist. Thanks!

You Got Barbecue Back There!?!?!?!

HS
stxbuck's picture

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..........

HS
Sanantonefan's picture

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 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. ;)
