What about Folk? When does Folk become country or Blues? Blues was people's music, so is folk... So how come we've not had that discussion?

When I'm dancing do I care whether it's trance or Electronica?(It's the only time I can tolerate dance music! It also has a brilliant effect of making me hyper-Hawkwind and JLH do it too...)

The way I figure it, Blues is the foundation for many genres of Rock, which catered for several generations who embraced the style as if it was there own.
Back in the 60's I rocked to many an Australian, UK and US bands or soloists who fired up Blues with ballsy, gutsy powerful energy.
Locals such as Billy Thorpe & the Aztecs and Matt Taylor - Chain spring to mind. Eric Burdon & the Animals, Troggs, Yardbirds, Stones, Zepps, just some examples of a huge list of great talent who have all said they owe it all to the Blues, it inspired them.

Also loved George Thorogoods and ZZ Tops energy, a refreshing alternative to the plastic, no brainer, no talent, Disco scene which contaminated the music scene since the 70's. Just so many variations.

I'm the same, what line?....and believe its a fantastic tribute to the old original Blues artists that later groups/entertainers kept the train a rollin'.

Emo's back on the road now. Still has it, I hear.


Oh cool! I'm gonna have to keep my eyes open for that!

I guess restarting the argument about blues/rock/blues rock, by saying that he has bluesy moments, similar to Clapton playing his electric wouldn't be a good idea, but hey that's my opinion, you don't need to shout at me about it! I like his style, I like Wakeman's style, I like John Lee Hooker, Blind Willie Johnson, Suzanne Vega, Take 6, Vox One, The Swingle Sisters, Jackie Leven, The Beatles... all sorts, simply because I hear the music and think "cool", I don't care about analysing it, breaking it into a box cos that's just useless... Like with Blind Willie Johnson: Blues gospel, or a mix of the two... What does it matter, It's cool music.

My thinking exactly.

"A cheerful heart is good medicine."
