The immortal words of Bosco

A little story I just had to pass on,

We did a gig last night, which was actually a hurricane Katrina benefit dance. It was a full day of entertainment and bands with us as the headliner at 9pm. I'm still trying to get my head around that one :-)
I walked out on stage, and as I always do, I asked if anyone there liked the blues. As usual, everyone yells 'YES'. I then said, and I kid you not, "Bosco once said, if you don't like the blues, you have a hole in your soul" Everyone yelled again, and we went into our cover of Everyday I have the blues.

It turned out to be a great night, but as you can see, there are some members here that have made an impression on me. This is a great place to hang out!

Bosco say: "He who not like blues have holey soul."

It'd look good in a fortune cookie.

"A cheerful heart is good medicine."

I think Jimmy Rogers said it first. :)

Thanks for the credit Mick, but in 2005 it's tough to lay claim to anything that hasn't been said before.

While we're on the subject, I often used BOZ's BigRoad byline on stage- the Townes Van Zandt quote;

"There's two kinds of music, the blues and Zippity-Do-dah."

The real bluesheads always get a howl out of that one... less informed folks just scratch their heads with a puzzled look. :D

Bosco has spoken.

"A cheerful heart is good medicine."

Not to burst anyone's bubble but the hole in the soul line has been used for years by everyone. Luther Allison immediately comes to mind. Maybe he got it from Bosco.

Bosco never claimed to have originated it. We're just having a little fun.

Hey,db57- if Luther picked it up somewhere,we'd never find out where--that guy was everywhere . At least his last sidemen are still around,but they had to have got dizzy from the travel as well,if his bios are accurate.

The last time I saw Luther Allison he was walking out of the front door of the club, still playing his guitar which was plugged into his amp with what must have been a 150 foot cable...
