LOVE THE BLUES

Sharing some famous blues quotes…

“The blues tells a story. Every line of the blues has a meaning.” ~ John Lee Hooker (1917–2001)

“The blues echoes right through into soul, R&B and hip hop.
It’s part of the make-up of modern music. You can’t turn your back on the blues.” ~ Ronnie WoodThe Rolling Stones

 “The blues are the roots and the other musics are the fruits. It’s better keeping the roots alive, because it means better fruits from now on. The blues are the roots of all American music. As long as American music survives, so will the blues.” ~ Willie Dixon (1915–1992)

“The blues is celebration, because when you take sorrow and turn it into music, you transform it.” ~ Odetta Holmes (1930 – 2008)

“When I’m singing the blues, I’m singing life.” ~ Etta James (1938–2012)

“Every bad situation is a blues song waiting to happen.” ~ Amy Winehouse (1983-2011)

“The blues are what I’ve turned to, what has given me inspiration and relief in all the trials of my life.” ~ Eric Clapton
