    You know what?? This is supposed to be a celebration of blues during Black History month. Where are the black blues musicians from which all of this started, and further, the point of the celebration? If there is going to be some "official" type of "celebration" [glad they are all having such a nice time]. Should there not be musicians only from the era/place of celebration? I am sitting here listening to songs from "Tattoo You". WTF?

    Par for the course imo.

    Yep. Derek is there along with Warren. For those just tuning in (and complaining about the complexion of the players) we've already seen BB, Buddy & Trombone Shorty. Booker T is there too, and I think Keb Mo.

    I think a theme here is that America gave this music to the world.

    My thoughts EXACTLY. Extremely ironic how Mick tells the story of Sonny Boy talking about how the british guys wanted to play the blues so bad, and they did play them, real bad. Then, Mick and Beck proceed to play some rocked out/whack version of "Commit A Crime". I'm not even so disgusted with the color, or lack there of in the performers, more so, with the lowest common denominator type lineup/song selection that seems to hinder these sorts of events. With so many great blues artists out there- Lurrie Bell, Jimmie Vaughan, so forth... I find it difficult to understand why Beck, Jagger, and such are present. My .02 of course and ya'll are entitled to your own opinions :bonk

    Shameika and GC Jr- I can get down with this!

    They are having some audio issues now and then. Trombone SHorty was great as was Jagger. Shemika Copeland on now!

    And that is GREAT! In my mind, keep it consistent. Further..

    Ahem....


    What about all of the unsung types of black blues musicians? Would it be too much for Barry and co. to bend their ear and listen to some down home country blues? Some "field hollers"? You know, where this genre comes from? I would have much more respect for the intention if they kept it real consistently.

    That said, I am listening to some riteous stuff from a couple of talented kids right now. KEEP IT UP!

    I thought the theme is Black History Month.

    Yap, apparently the FUTURE of eh blooz is now....

    I am sure any real blues players couldn't get cleared to be on the White House list...

    Edit: of course there are some real blues players on the list, I am talking about down and dirty soulful blues guys that would resemble what the blues came from.
