THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF JUNE 18-19, 2016

Joe Simon was the R and B King in the 70’s and 80’s with hits like The Chokin King, Power of Love, Get Down On the Floor, Drowning in A Sea of Love and many more…Then, he dropped off the music scene….Vanished… We found out that Joe is still alive and well, and he received an award this past Friday in Philadelphia during the Phillies Game for his past accomplishments in the R and B world. We caught up with Joe by phone, and found out he’s now Bishop Joe Simon, and he’s left that world far behind. We started the interview by asking about his award this past Friday….

THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF JUNE 11-12, 2016

CopelandCongratulations to Shemekia Copeland… She won the Blues Music Award for Contemporary Blues Female Artist of the year at the 37th Annual Blues Music Awards. This is her ninth award, the fifth in this particular category, out of 34 nominations. Other winners were Buddy Guy, Victor Wainwright, Mr. Sipp, Joe Louis Walker, Doug MacLeod, and Duke Robillard….Congrats to all the winners….The awards were held in May in Memphis….

Buddy GuyWaiting For Buddy Guy…Chicago Blues at the Crossroads is a book written by British writer Alan Harper.    It details his personal times learning about the Chicago Blues scene… Writer Hubert O’Hearn has a written a nice review on American Blues Scene Magazine web site detailing the book. I have not read it, or do I have it, but reading about what Mr. O’Hearn has written makes me want to get it and read it. According to Mr. O’Hearn, it’s not a biography of Buddy Guy, but the experiences of Alan Harper learning about the Chicago Blues Scene. Many different journeys through the Chicago Blues Clubs. One of the things that Mr. O’Hearn did mention that came out of the book was an incident when the Beatles first came to America. A reporter covering the Beatles asked them “Which one of Them is Muddy Waters.” John Lennon responded, “Don’t you people Know your own Great Musicians?” You can read the review on AmericanBluesScene.com….We have a link on the BluesNewsPage at Bluestimeinthecity.com…

The 33RD Chicago Blues Festival is going on Right Now, Friday, Saturay and Sunday… One of the highlights of this year besides the usual Incredible Line Up is the Otis Rush Tribute on Sunday Night featuring Jimmy Johnson, Eddie Shaw, Lurrie Bell, Carl Weathersby, and many many others…That will close the festival out, which takes place on the Petrillo Music Shell.…..…When you get this slot, that usually means you are the best of the best…Kinda like being the MVP for the NBA or NFL Season, or the Tuba player dotting the “I” at Ohio State Band’s Halftime shows, or winning the ESPN Scripts Howard spelling Bee…Maybe that’s a little harder to do, but it’s big….This is the biggest Blues Festival in the world, and it’s always free to the public. Scores of blues artists from all over the world are in Chicago this weekend enjoying the Best in the Blues….
