Keep it easy, keep it going.

Which blues man was honoured in the 80's by the French Culture Ministry?

Purely on the grounds of his residency, I'll go Memphis Slim. I have an alternative available if he isn't it.

I think I've got the answer, but all I've got (without some "research") is a question about a jazzer (close enough?).

Nope, this ain't nowhere near jazz. This, I have to say, is not one of the big names.

This novel is the only work of fiction by a writer who has written several books on blues, rock, soul and country. The novel is about a rediscovered bluesman. What is the title and who wrote it?

I don't see how anyone can "cheat" in this game. Unless you read my mind or hacked into my computer and looked at my browser history I think you're okay.

That is the right answer. Your turn.

Thanks dcblues. Here we go,

What bluesman was born with a sixth little finger on each hand He later cut the one off of the right hand after drinking too much. :shock:

That would be the infamous Hound Dog Taylor, pictured in your avatar and the artist Alligator records was founded on.

Gotta love a cheap Tiesco guitar, wish I still had mine!
