Blues=Life Watching Scorsese's PBS Blues series? (69* d) RE: Watching Scorsese's PBS Blues series? 03 Oct 03

I liked "Godfathers and Sons" better than I thought I would. I really liked Chuck D's line about most kids don't know about musicians 5 years ago, let alone 30. The fact that a rapper feels such a connection with the blues, and showed reverence for the players, impressed me. I also thought the case was well made that it was immigrants to Chicago who shaped the Chicago blues scene, whether they were from Polond or Mississippi. Being from the Midwest, and living in the South, I find myself feeling like an immigrant sometimes, but I had never conceptualized it this way. Now, it makes sense. The immigrant looks at a new culture through different lenses than the native.

By the way, Koko can still bring it!
