THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
For The Weekend of October 20-21, 2018

On the front cover of the latest edition of Living Blues Magazine is the one and only Latimore.  In the featured article by David Whiteis, Latimore talks about his career, and the music that he loves.  Latimore has been in the business 60 plus years, and according to the Charleston Tennessee native, and now Tampa Florida resident says he loves what he’s been doing the 60 years he’s been in the business, and looks forward to sixty more.  I once asked Latimore how he would like to be remembered 50 years from now.  His answer was simply, “He got shot last Tuesday.”  Great article on the great Latimore in this month’s edition of Living Blues Magazine.

Believe it or not, it’s getting close.  January 22nd through January 26th, it the Blues Foundation’s International Blues Challenge.  Blues Bands from all over the world will compete for the big prize, being recognized as the best blues band in the world.  The competition is fierce and strong, and these bands bring it.  One of the things that I like about the competition is some of the members of the bands can’t even speak English, but can sing the blues in perfect English.   During that week, it’s not only hearing a lot of great Blues Music, but they have activities ranging from  Blues Jams, Showcases presented by different Blues Societies,  Health Screenings, Roundtable discussions,  and book signings.  Lots of activities that week in Memphis Tennessee and the Blues Foundation always does a great job in presenting this huge event.  The IBC finals will be held on Saturday, January 26th

And on a very sad note to me, one of my favorite artists in jazz, blues, big screen, stage and Television, and Atlanta Icon Ms Theresa Hightower of Atlanta Georgia passed away on Wednesday, October 10th… Theresa was a dear friend and one of the nicest people on earth.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to Tony, her son and the family.  Theresa will surely be missed.  She was a very lovely lady.  Her going home celebration will be held Monday, October 29th at The Ray Charles Performing Arts Center on the campus of Morehouse College.

There is a new book coming out October 30th entitled “Bitten By The Blues…The alligator Records Story.  It’s written by Bruce Iglauer and Patrick A. Roberts.  Bruce is the founder of Alligator Records and Living Blues Magazine, and Patrick is associate professor in the College of Education at Northern Illinois University. The book takes a look at how Bruce first heard a blues man by the name of Hound Dog Taylor and decided to record him.  Mind you, this was the first artist that he recorded.  It looks at his relationships with some of the great blues icons like KoKo Taylor, Son Seals, Albert Collins, Kenny Neal and many of the great blues artists in the industry came about.  Bitten By the Blues, The Alligator Records Story has some great behind the scenes look at the business of the Blues and the people involved.  Again, the book will be out on October 30th…..

And speaking of books, Tina Turner said in her upcoming autobiography, Tina Turner: My Love Story scheduled to be released later this month, that she received a kidney transplant from her husband Erwin Bach.  She said in 2016 her kidneys were at 20 percent and going down fast.  She says her husband just told her he wanted to give her one of his kidneys.  Tina said it shocked her by his generous offer.  Tina is 78 years old, and right now, she’s doing fine.

Paul Allen is a Billionaire, who owns the Seattle Seahawks, The Portland Trailblazers, and many other things that billionaires own.  He was one of the founders of Microsoft along with Bill Gates back in the day.  I suppose you’re wondering why am I talking about a billionaire that owns the Seattle Seahawks….Well, here’s Why…
(Paul Allen Song)

Paul also has a Blues Rock Band.  He’ s the lead guitarist for Paul Allen and the Underthinkers.  They have a BCD out titled Everywhere at Once…..He wrote or co-wrote all the tracks on the BCD. You figure a billionaire would have someone else to do the writing.  This man genuinely loves the Blues.   Another reason we’re talking about Paul Allen is according to an Associated Press article on October 1st, Paul’s cancer has returned.  He was treated for cancer in 2009 and it apparently flared up again.  Allen saw Jimi Hendrix in Seattle when he was 16, and 30 years later, he was the force behind the Jimi Hendrix Museum located in Seattle.  I’ve been to the EMP and let me tell you, it is fabulous.  To date, Allen has given over 1.5 Billion Dollars to non-profits and other worthy causes….Hope Paul Allen can beat this again and get better real soon…. If you want to read the article, we have a link to it on the BluesNews Page at bluestimeinthecity.com…
