GUEST,Hootenanny Blues on TV (28) RE: Blues on TV 27 Oct 18


Agreed, Lonnie Johnson had played with Jazz Musicians, Louis Armstrong for one and Eddie Laing for another, but surely you are not comparing his style with that of T-Bone.
And Lonnie if I remember correctly didn't play electric guitar until long after T-Bone and in a completely different style.
Re Victoria Spivey, yes there are better clips around, the one they used was an unfortunate choice.


I am aware of the Scorsese film. I have the set (including that awful one about British Blues: Lulu and Tom Jones????). In my opinion it proves nothing and I believe what I think Val was hinting at was that any resemblance between Toure's music and Hooker was because Toure had listened to blues. I am not knocking Toure but he was not playing or singing blues.
