Thread Name: Who is your favorite blues artist?
Subject: RE: Who is your favorite blues artist?
Surprised nobody's mentioned B.B. King yet, so I will. The very first time I even HEARD the blues...being raised rural and uninformed was also the first time I smoked weed. Someone put the 'Live AT Cook County Jail' LP on the stereo and I sat there completely pasted. Never heard anything so audacious, fun and painful...all at the same time. Have seen him several times...love 'im, just love 'im.
