I played at a festival last year and this young guy who looked like more of a Metallica fan, stood in front of the stage for a while, lots of leather, metal and tats. While I was playing, I thought to myself, this guy's gonna be bored. When I finished a slide number, to my surprise, he stuck his fist in the air and yelled YE-AH!!!

Years ago, fans of the old acoustic blues may not have thought Chicago blues (electric, distortion) was blues or even Stevie Ray Vaughn or Cream. All genres have to evolve while maintaining it's connection to the roots or they becomes stagnant. I think a lot of bluegrass fans for example, do no want the music to change. New music then becomes just a rehash of the old. (bluegrass comment not meant to veer the thread).

IMHO 3 chords and a pentatonic scale don't have to make blues.

I like Tommy Iommi's playing but think the rest of its pointless. To me Blues is about deep emotion--like hellhound on my trail-- Paranoid doesn't cut it for me as blues

About as much as Led Zep was.
