In 1971, Bobby Rush put out a record called Chicken Heads.  The record is probably the best he ever did, and it launched Bobby into the Top Tier of Blues Artist around the world.  This year, that song is 50 years old, and Bobby still holds his place in the hierarchy of Blues Performers.  Bobby is releasing Chicken Heads again, with Bobby himself, and other artists releasing their versions of it.  This is a cool idea.  We talked with Bobby, and he explained what he’s doing with Chicken Heads, and what he’s doing with a special day coming up in November.
