And in the latest edition of Living Blues Magazine, they have a very good article on Barbara Lynn, by Lee Hilderbrand…She’s from Beaumont Texas, and in 1952, she hit it big with You’ll Lose a Good Thing..…That song is still a hit today…. What did I learn from this article??? I knew she was a great guitarist, and she played it left handed, but I didn’t know she played it upside down, like Albert King… Great article on Barbara Lynn….And in this issue, there’s an article on the Boston Blues Queen, Toni Lynn Washington by Margo Cooper… What did I learn from this articke??? I didn’t know Toni Lynn was eighty years old. I have met and interviewed her, but I didn’t know she was getting up there…She looks good… And there the article on Blues Heaven, Willie Dixon’s foundation in Chicago that provides business advice for musicians, and teaching the blues to kids….Greats articles in the latest edition of Living Blues Magazine……

THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF JULY 16-17, 2016

chuck berryThat’s the music of the late great Johnnie Johnson, long time keyboard player for the famous Chuck Berry. American Blues Scene Magazine has reported that Johnnie Johnson will Receive the Congressional Gold Medal. This is one of the highest civilian honors in the United States, going to people whose achievements had an impact on American History and Culture. But, the medal is presented not for playing the Blues, but his military history. He enlisted in the Marines during World War II when the Marines were still segregated. From 1942 to 1949, more than 24, 000 African American men received Marine Corp training Camp Montford Point, a part of Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, and endured racism and all kinds of hatred, but they inspired social change while intergrating the all white Marine Corp. His widow, Frances Johnson will receive the medal at a ceremony later this year. The reason the Marines stopped this special program for admitting African American Marines was because of Executive Order, 9081, President Harry S. Truman Executive Order which desegregated the U.S. Armed Forces… Congratulations to the family of Johnnie Johnson….We have a link to the article that’s on the American BluesScene site on the BluesNews Page at Bluestimeinthecity.com

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….
