Depends on what story you believe. But, who cares? Hound Dog and Freddie are both badasses in their own right. :mrgreen:

How 'bout Howlin' Wolf? Where would Beefheart be without Howlin Wolf?

Also, early Muddy Waters. Lightnin Hopkins. Robert Johnson. Too obvious? They're some of the the best, though.



Then there's a whole gigantic shitload of terrible blues players. Far too many.

I like Robert Johnson a lot too. But apart from him, I haven't heard much. And I don't like Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Man, get yourself some Memphis Slim, James Cotton, earlier BB King, Paul Butterfield Blues Band records, rare and expensive. Then get yourself a woman that loves you, a dawg, a best friend and a job.

Then ya come home one night, your records are broken on the lawn, along with your torn clothes. Then the love of your life sets your own dawg on ya after taking your weeks paycheck, just as your best jobless friend pulls up in a new car and walks right on in your bedroom with his suitcase. All the while she be sayin' and laughin', what a fool, dumb assed ignorant, peckerwood, cracker you are...and she will get alimony for her son, whom you adopted ya dumb ass!
Now you have a good handle on getting The Blues. :wink:

Know what I mean Vern? :mrgreen:

Yeah. As if there ever was such a thing.

The way I look at it... SRV should be kicking ass, at the very least, because he played the same solo over and over again, night after night, song after song, while his bandmates toed the line.
