THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF AUGUST 23-24, 2014

If you want to get in on The International Blues Challenge, you need to get your information in the the Blues Foundation now…The event will be held January 20-24, 2015 in Memphis Tennessee and bands from all over the world will be competing for what has been the launch of some great blues careers…. We have a link to the Foundation’s web site at btic.com, and you can get all the information there…..

Johnny Winter final BCD will be out September 2nd….It’s called Step Back….Johnny made the transition (July 16, 2014 )…. Johnny worked with Muddy Waters for a long time, and he produced one of the greatest blues albums I’ve ever heard…It’s called Muddy Mississippi Waters Live…..A single has been released from the BCD and we have a link to the it on the BluesNews page of BluesTime In The City.  The single is called Can’t Hold Out and it’s done with Ben Harper….

The House of Blues on Sunset Strip in LA will be no longer.  It’s being demolished to make room for a luxury hotel there.  The House of Blues has been operating there for over two decades.  Owners of the House of Blues says they will find a new home for the Blues Venue, but hasn’t been located yet.  House of Blues is not the only venue to get the boot… Larry Flynt’s Hustler Hollywood will also see the wrecking ball, along with other venues.  The HOB will operate at the facility for another 2 years, then, Boom….

We all know that the great comedian Robin Williams passed away a couple of weeks ago.  Well, besides being a great comedian, actor, host, you name it, Robin Williams was it, he could also sing the blues.  On the BluesNew page of BTIC, we have a link to a video where Robin is singing the blues along with Bill Bailey for the Prince of Whales……. It’s really good…and very funny….

THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF JULY 26-27, 2014

We have some sad news to report…Blues great Johnny Winter passed away.  He made the transition on Wednesday July16th while on tour in Zurich.  Winter was a music prodigy, playing instruments like the clarinet at age 4.. For me, he will be best remembered for producing the greatest blues album ever recorded, according to me, Muddy Mississippi Waters Live in 1979.  He released more than 25 albums over his career, and ironically, he never won a Grammy.  In an interview last month with JournalStar.com, he was asked what he’d like his legacy to be…He simply replied, “I Just Hope I’m remembered as a Good Blues Musician.”  That you will Johnny….That you will….

They know who committed the crime… They know what was taken… But the question remains, how much?  In Chattanooga Tennessee at the Bessie Smith Museum and Cultural Center, following their annual fundraising “Bessie Smith Strut”, a thief broke into the safe and stole from 60 to 80 thousand dollars in cash.  Torrey Hines, an employee there, admitted to the heist and turned himself in.  The Center says that 89,000 dollars was taken.  But Hines says, it was not that much.  He brought back 39,000 dollars in a box, and he says he only spent 2500 dollars. That’s an almost 50,000 dollar discrepancy, all of this according to the Chattanooga Times.  Who are you gonna believe?  The distinguished, good hearted, honest, upstanding working burglar that stole the money and brought most of it back, or someone who allegedly  happen to leave over 80,000 dollars in cash in a desk drawer with the key in an unlocked safe for anyone to see. We’ll keep working on this case of the Missing Money Blues.  The Bessie Smith Cultural Center was named for the 1920’s Blues Artist, Bessie Smith, known as The Empress of The Blues who was born in Chattanooga in April of 1894.  In the words of one of Bessie’s songs, “Judge Judge Please Mr. Judge, Send somebody to the Lectric Chair.”  Or Lost Your Head Blues
