Reflexion : Here's an interesting Blues fact. When I played the Monterey Blues Festival the headliner was James Brown.
On night two of that festival the headliner was Little Richard. In the States we recognise that the Blues, Rock & Roll, Funk, Soul and even Jazz are related. Siblings from the family of Black American Music.
I've played on the same shows with, performed onstage with and had good times chatting and my elders. People such as Mr John Lee Hooker, Mr Albert Collins, Mr Joe Louis Walker and so many more. Oddly enough, when I call or write to get on Blues festivals in the UK I'm told by white promoters that my music is too funky or that what I play isn't the Blues. Perhaps me and my music are too Black for British Blues where all the award winners are white. Where none of then suffered the oppression and degradation of being a real Bluesman in America. Oh well.. I don't need or want these piddly awards. I didn't choose to be Black or to sing the Blues. The Blues chose me.
Blues is my heritage. It's my life and my music. You keep the awards. I just want to make a decent, adult wage while singing he music of my people and making multitudes happy with my songs. Well I'm off to perform authentic Black American Blues in Italy this week. See y'all upon my return. Ps: I'm not angry about white Blues artist winning awards. Merely concerned when an authentic Bluesman such as myself is barred from performing on British Blues Festivals.
