Blue Thoughts January 10 2013
Some great quotes about what is "The Blues" and what it means...
Pop music is aspirin and the blues are vitamins.
The blues was like that problem child that you may have had in the family. You was a little bit ashamed to let anybody see him, but you loved him. You just didn’t know how other people would take it.
B. B. King
I’m not a big Blues fan, but I don’t know anyone who doesn’t dig B.B. King.
I think the Blues will always be around. People need it.
I guess music, particularly the Blues, is the only form of schizophrenia that has organised itself into being both legal and beneficial to society.
I think a guy who’s had just the right amount of booze can sing the Blues a hell of a lot better than a guy who is stone sober.
The Blues – the sound of a sinner on revival day.
William Christopher Handy
Once I was checking to hotel and a couple saw my ring with Blues on it. They said, ‘You play blues. That music is so sad.’ I gave them tickets to the show, and they came up afterwards and said, ‘You didn’t play one sad song.’
I realized I was tired of singing about trees and flowers. I wanted to sing about real life. From then on, nobody could tell me anything was better than Blues.
Don’t believe any of these guys, come down to ‘RM one night and prove yourself wrong!
