So I went out and bought "Hard Again" by Muddy Waters. That was a big learning curve. I
listened to that album again and again and again. James Cotton was the harmonica player
on that album.

A guy will promise you the world and give you nothin', and that's the blues.
A lot of people relate me to the blues but I don't think it's a hindrance at this point.
I've been doing it long enough that I can do different things and be accepted.
After I exhausted the blues thing, I got into jazz.
As far as I'm concerned, blues and jazz are the great American contributions to music.
Blues is a natural fact, is something that a fellow lives. If you don't live it you don't have it.
Young people have forgotten to cry the blues. Now they talk and get lawyers and things.
Big Bill Broonzy
Blues is easy to play, but hard to feel.
