THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES FOR THE WEEKEND OF MARCH 24-25, 2018 April 4th is the birthday of the late great with no debate Muddy Waters, one of the greatest blues musicians to ever live.  The American Blues Scene site has a petition on their site to officially create a Muddy Waters Google Doodle for The Mud on April 4th.. We talked this a few months back when they first came up with this brilliant idea…It seems to be doing very well, and you can get involved.  You cannot have to many names on the petition.  Time is running out, and if you want to get involved, if you want to get your friends involved, we have a link to the why’s on the Muddy Waters Google Doodle and the petition on the BluesNews page at BluesTimeInTheCity.com…..If you don’t know what we’re talking about, that’s when you go to the google site, and you’ll see a doodle of Muddy Waters.  They have all kinds of daily doodles there…. https://www.americanbluesscene.com/google-make-muddy-waters-google-doodle/ BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM Also on the American Blues Scene site, there’s an article by Chloe Richardson titled What Guitars Did Stevie Ray Vaughn Play?  It caught my eye because I did not know he had so many names for all the guitars he played throughout the years.  Let me see if I can get through some of this.  His first was a toy guitar, a Masonite from Sears.  Then he got big brothers Jimmie’s Gibson Messenger.  Then he got Number One, a Fender Stratocaster…From there he got Lenny..After Lenny, he got Red….After Red, he got Yellow and from Yellow he became the proud owner of Charley.  From Charley he went to Main and from Main to Scotch….Well, you get the picture.  And in the article, Chloe has the story behind each one and the songs that Stevie Ray did with each one….Very interesting article by Cloe Richardson on the American Blues Scene site.  We have a link to the article on the BluesNews Page at BluesTime In The City.com….. https://www.americanbluesscene.com/guitars-stevie-ray-vaughan-play/ BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM Theodis Ealey is a TV Star now.  He’s playing a role in Season 6, Episode 14 of the series Nashville.  That will be on the Country Music Channel.
