Maybe this only pisses me off, but I was watching the top 100 female’s in rock the other night. They were talking about Patsy Cline and that big guy from Blues Trav. said, “She was country, but she knew the blues”. Is he implying that country performers don’t know the blues. Hasn’t he ever heard Jimmie Rodgers or Hank Williams. :mad: These guys WERE white blues men. I’m not talking about the modern pop country, but real country. What about Dwight Yokum, or Shaver. If anybody doesn’t know the blues it’s Blues Trav, despite thier name they have nothing to do with the blues. What they do know about is long rambling songs that go nowhere and all sound the same.
Another one on the same show that pissed me off was Queen Latifa. Speaking about Aretha Franklin, she said, “She’s been making records from 1968 to 1998…”, now I’m no expert on A.F.'s career but wasn’t she making records in the 50’s?
Why do they get such morons to speak about these perfomers???
