THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES FOR THE WEEKEND OF JANUARY 20-21, 2018   The Great Denise LaSalle funeral service was held last Monday in Jackson Tennessee.  Denise passed away on Monday January 8th.  The service was originally scheduled for Saturday, January 13th, but because the extremely bad weather in Tennessee, they moved it to last Monday.  Denise LaSalle was one of the greatest Blues Women and Blues Singer to sing and perform the Blues.  She was also a great writer of Blues, R & B and Country, and she will certainly be missed.  We’ve been paying homage to Denise throughout the show, and will continue to do so until the end of the show today.  In 2015, The Jus Blues Music Foundation named an award in Denise’s honor, and Denise expressed what an honor it was for this to happen to her while she was still alive to enjoy it….. (Denise on Jus Blues Award) This Belzoni Mississippi native was also honored by the Mississippi State Legislature, has a Mississippi Blues Trail Marker, The story of Denise’s demise was carried nationally from every publication in the country from the Times to the Journal, Television, Radio and every publication you can name, even the Television Arts and Sciences Academy.  Denise LaSalle was 78 years of age. BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM According to AmericanBluesScene.com, “The Thrill is on” is a film that’s in the early stages of production of a true story of a young musician named Michael Zanetis who is in pursuit of his destiny.  In 1980, this you musician attends a B.B. King concert, and they meet, and form a lifelong friendship.  The journey of this young musician eventually leads him to memorial BB with his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1990, where BB was the first Blues Artist to receive this honor.  B.B. King will be portrayed by Wendell Pierce and filming will begin in April of this year.  Should be a pretty good film…. BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM There is a documentary on Eric Clapton titled Life in 12 Bars.  The documentary visually chronicles the life of Eric Clapton over his musical career.  It even has the visuals in it where back in the 70’s he was on stage shouting racist slogans, such as “Keep Britian White” and other racist chants.  If you read the stories, he said a lot of racists slurs.  Clapton says he is ashamed of how he acted during those time, and says he is not a racist.  Reminds you of the other guys who says the same thing.  Naturally, “I am not a racist” is the go to answer for racists….. The documentary will air on ShowTime…Check your local listings.
