Sunday Morning Blues
We celebrated blues greats birthdays to start the show today including one of the greatest and most influential musicians who ever lived: Muddy Waters.

This week we began with a special tribute to some of the Blues greats that we lost in 2013. Alvin Lee of Ten Years After, the speedy fingers that pumped the crowd with adrenaline at Woodstock and played rockin’ blues on a dozen Ten Years After albums and them many solo releases was taken from us way before his time, but left us with a wealth of riffs!
Happy birthday to Ronnie Earl, who celebrates on March 10th! The guitarist extraordinaire has been playing the blues since the 70′s when he was a member of Roomful of Blues, replacing original ax-man Duke Robillard.
Happy birthday Rory Gallagher! The late Irish guitarist rules the known universe as far we’re concerned!
This week was Show #738 and it featured some fantastic new music. Cyril Neville, legendary singer of the Meters and current member of Royal Southern Brotherhood has a solo album out called “Magic Honey,” which runs the gamut from smooth cajun grooves to straight rock blues.
Fat Tuesday in New Orleans is on Tuesday March 4th, but this weekend the Mardi Gras parades began! So, we decided to celebrate to start off the show! Plus, with all this snow and frigid weather, a visit to Louisiana is just what the doctor ordered!
I know it’s the blues show, but because it was the 50th Anniversary of the Beatles’ appearance on the “Ed Sullivan” show, we dug deep and began the show with some “Beatle Blues!”
This year, Sunday Morning Blues took place on Superbowl Sunday! As it turns out, if we had a song called “The Broncos’ Blues,” it would have been quite prophetic. Maybe one will come out next week!
Blues Show #734 began with a Happy birthday tribute to Johnny Winter!! The legendary Texas blues/rock guitarist celebrated his 70th on January 23rd! Go Johnny go!
