postheadericon BluesNews from the World of BluesBlues: February 10-11, 2018

THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES FOR THE WEEKEND OF FEBRUARY 10-11, 2018 There’s an article in GQ Magazine about Quincy Jones.  It’s by Chris Heath and it’s titled “Quincy Jones Has A Story About That.” And the 84 year old Quincy has a story about that and more.  In the article, Quincy has stories about Ray Charles, Malcolm X, Elon Musk, Frank Sinatra, Tupac, Prince, Stevie Wonder, you name them, he has a story about them.  He even talks about how good Miles Davis could prepare eggs. He talks about all kinds of music, his upbringing in Chicago, and even his 22 girl friends has has now, and how his daughters laid out some ground rules for his dating…You know, nobody younger than us….At 84…You go big dogg….Great article, and it’s not for the young at heart…Know what I mean….If you’re interested, we have a link to the GQ article on the BluesNew Page at BluesTimeInThecity.com… https://www.gq.com/story/quincy-jones-has-a-story BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM From the American Blues Scene.com site, Matt Marshall did this article titled “Help Petition Google to Make a Muddy Waters Google Doodle.”  The idea is to petition Google to create a Muddy Water Doodle on April 4th, which is Muddy’s birthday….This is a brilliant idea.  Google celebrates music icons this way, and according to the article, and I’m quoting this right from the article,  “a Muddy Waters Google Doodle will help bring cultural recognition and understanding to a music that is still the foundation for almost any popular music today.  Soul, Hip Hop, Rock n Roll, Rap and many more can trace direct roots to the Blues, which even contributes the “B” in R & B.” Stop quote.  If you want to know how you can help, and/or sign the petition, we have a link to the article by Matt on the BluesNews page at BluesTimeinthecity.com….Great idea…. https://www.americanbluesscene.com/google-make-muddy-waters-google-doodle/ BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM  The man that brought the Saxophone Energy to the Blues, Eddie Shaw has made the transition…He was 80 years of age and he made the transition Tuesday, January 30th…. He was Inducted in Blues Hall of fame in 2014… He played with the likes of Magic Sam, Muddy Waters, he was  Howlin Wolf’s band leader from 72 until Wolf made the transition, in 1976,  and, he was his own band leader….That’s all he ever wanted to do was front his own band and that’s exactly what he did from 1976 until the end……In the words of Eddie Shaw, “I Do What I Wanna Do.”  Eddie Shaw traveled the world playing the blues, but it one place he always loved and never forget where came from….The cotton field of Greenville Mississippi…..Our condolences go to the family of the late, Eddie Shaw…..
