Do you have the blues?

I never really gave it a thought but I think I may do a blues show this weekend. I’ve been listening to some Johnny Winters and there is some really good stuff here that I would like to play. I think I’ll play what I can but avoid playing anything by b.b.king. Not to disrespect him but I would like to listen to his early stuff before I decide which song I would like to play. I think Albert Collins said it best – “B.B. doesn’t feel the blues anymore”. I was thinking some of the following – Albert King, Albert Collins, Johnny Winters, maybe Robert Cray and some Lonnie Mack. I’m hesitant to play Gary Moore but he’s one of my favorite metal guitar players before he underwent a blues conversion. The former Thin Lizzy guitarist actually had a more lucrative career playing the blues than he did with metal. It will be a game time decision.
