Well, you've made it so far. It wouldn't constitute a Shaggy Dog story to suggest that you're nearly there.

That question/hints combo once more:
Reputedly a Blytheville, Arkansas resident, this Paramount recording artist effectively (as far as historians and biographers are concerned) vanished after making his records.
Who is/was he?
Hint: "xxxxx, can you spare a dime?"
Hint 2: "Let ne out the gox!"

Is the correct answer!
Collect your Kewpie Doll, pass "Go", with 200 of the local currency of the board's owner etc.
Give us your best shot, mate :)

You got the first letter right. Looking for the whole birth name (3 altogether).

Hints:
Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas
Recording pioneer

At a Texas BBQ I'd prefer a T-Bone

Lee Harvey Oswald was a resident of Oak Cliff but lets hope he inspired no-one.

Your looking for Aaron Thibeaux Walker I thinks.

Researching, numerous influences were mentioned brother Jimmie, the 3 Kings and Albert Collins among others.

We have a winner!

Yse, all the people you mentioned were indeed cited as influences, but as documented in Caught in the Crossfire (a very good bio of SRV), he said that the greatest influence on his sound was T-Bone.

Thanks not so old Mojo
I've stolen this off an antipodean board from a thread I started inspired by the Big Road Trivia :wink:
.......................................................................
An artist wrote a song that asks a well known blues singer to pass on a message of encouragement to another well known blues singer, relatively unknown at the time the song was set( i.e. song was set in the past).

A clue, the songs author/singer's father was also a well known in folk and theater circle's.

The answer needs all three names
1. Author/ singer
2. The two Bluesmen its about
PLUS
3. The songs title.

Hey Guys-

Leaving April 28 to hunt turkeys in Missouri, I'll be back May 6. If Rico or someone could start the May trivia thread for me I would appreciate it. Thanks!
