THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF SEPTEMBER 17-18, 2016

Back in June, we had Bishop Joe Simon on the program. We did an interview with him that was very informative. Well now, there is a move afloat to get Joe Simon in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. With 51 charted singles in his name, A guy by the name of Ken Levy out of Stamford Connecticut is petitioning the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to get Joe in. Joe should be in the fame. There is a petition on line which needs 100 people to sign to push this through. If you think Joe Simon, Bishop Joe Simon should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, you can sign the petition. …. Joe had hits such as Drowning In The Sea of Love, The Power of Love, The Chockin Kind and many others…. Joe is a Bishop now, and this is what he told us back in June…..

(Joe Simon Sound)

We have a link to the petition on the BluesNews Page at BluesTime In The City.com

The National Museum of African American Culture will open on Saturday, the 24th in Washington DC. One of the items they have on display is Chuck Berry’s Cadillac, along with a lot of other blues artifacts. But Chuck Berry’s Red Cadillac on display…..Well, to my surprise, there is an article on the American Blues Scene Magazine Web Site this week with the 10 Most Famous Blues Cars and their owners. Chuck’s car is not included, but there are some interesting cars. The Cadillac naturally is one, plus the T-Model Ford, a Packard used by Bessie Smith, The Rocket 88 Oldsmobile owned by Jackie Brenson, you know the song, Rocket 88, and this one was a surprise to me, Issac Hayes Gold Plated Cadillac. There is a bio with each one of the cars, and it’s very interesting. I didn’t know the Terraplane was a car….Terraplane Blues by Robert Johnson??? It’s some good history of the blues and automobiles. If you want to see and read about these automobiles, we have a link to the AmericanBluesScene article on the BluesNews Page at BluesTimeInTheCity.com….
