Yes, I like blues... as with any genre, it depends on the person doing it.
I really like this guy.

I loved this guy on AGT last season! I still wanted Poppycock to win though...

Michael Grimm was just on the Today show! He's pretty good and I think he'll go farther than being a flash in the pan...lol

I am very much a lover of blues

I don't see Michael Grimm being more than a flash in the pan. He was a winner on America's Got Talent. It is very difficult for anyone to really make it in blues today as it is not nearly as popular with younger people. A blues artist has to just about play a lead guitar (and very well at that) to have much chance of making it. Grimm just strums an acoustic guitar.

One of the most talented blues singers to come down the pike in a couple of decades.

Last year, maybe longer ago, you posted a blog about a wunderkind blues guitarist who did impress me. But, I don't recall his name. But, sadly, there are just not many blues artists emerging over the last twenty years

One of the bands that I have taken an interest in recently that does some blues is Big Head Todd and the Monsters. But they have been around since the late eighties. Here are some tracks by them (the last one is their biggest hit but not blues):

The Moose Song
Boom Boom
Voodoo Child
Please Don't Tell Her
Resignation Superman

I checked out his Web site and he released an album yesterday. Unless he can get some C&W crossover he'll be a flash in the pan largely due to circumstances if he stays in the blues genre. Let me explain.

There are three key factors involved:
Air play
Recorded music sales
Concerts

In the greater Dallas area the number of radio stations that play blues is zero. Our last small showcase blues club closed down last year. The people who get into the blues by and large are old farts like doc and myself. We don't purchase music generally, it is the people 25 and under that do. The only artists remotely affiliated with blues that can come here and can draw more than a few thousand folks is Eric Clapton and ZZ Top, and ZZ Top is mostly doing casinos at Indian reservations.

Do you think that all the ladies who swoon over him are old farts like us ??
