Blues

Actually I was searching for another song, BB King and Heavy D performing "Keep it comin`", a very nice fusion of rap and blues, but it seems video is not available on You Tube. Yet.
Instead, I have found this jewel. BB King and Gary Moore performing one of the King`s most famous songs "The Thrill is Gone".

I am not sure how many of you like to listen to blues but this one is really rocking… or maybe I may say "bluesing" πŸ˜› Also, it shows the two different man playing the same instrument, each in their own way. The way that made them famous.

If you are interested, there is also available another version of the same song, only this time BB King played it with Eric Clapton (guitar) and Phil Collins (drums). They all look much younger there πŸ˜€
And, if a black star will rise from the west tomorrow…. well, I don`t care. Only important thing is here an now.
And now I am listening blues :happy:

    Love this and love the blues. There's a few blues places where I live. Char's is one…been there. Rhythm Room is another which I haven't been to yet.

  10. PainterWoman says:

    Big Pete Pearson is a regular at the Rhythm Room. In this video, the first minute is instrumental, then he sings. You will also see lots of Arizona desert:

    Robert Cray is one of my favorite blues singers. I have a few of his tapes. They are old so I should probably replace them with CDs.

  11. gdare says:

    The funny thing about this kind of blues is that it makes me happy in a strange way. I don`t know how to explain it better.I am not old. I will never admit it. Whatever scooters kids say. They are not mature enough to have their own opinion πŸ˜›

  12. LorenzoCelsi says:

    Darko, you know why you like that music? Because you are old! πŸ˜† Ask the kids that sit on scooters out of my door.

  13. zetorres says:

    No one is to much younger for good music! :D:D:D

  14. gdare says:

    Thanks Adele πŸ˜€

  17. zetorres says:

    :lol::lol:

  18. gdare says:

    Rose – I am glad you like it even though you are not old enough to have your own opinion πŸ˜›

  19. rose-marie says:

    I want a scooter too :awww:

  20. gdare says:

    No problem Rose. Scooter for you::D

  21. LorenzoCelsi says:

    If I was you I would worry of the brakes instead.

  22. rose-marie says:

    Brakes? I have a helmet :p

  23. rose-marie says:

    Woohoo! Look at that jet motor :hat:

  24. LorenzoCelsi says:

    By experience I can say it is not a good idea to stop the scooter head-on.

  25. zetorres says:

    Try to stop in a swimming pool! πŸ˜‰

  26. edwardpiercy says:

    Great stuff. Thanks for posting. :up:You know what I always wondered about? B.B. King and Albert King were born at around the same time and within a few miles of each other. And both named their guitars "Lucille."I wonder if there is some untold story there. Two young bluesmen, both fall in love with the same woman — a girl named Lucille. Thus creating a bitter, life-long rivalry. Just thinking. No evidence whatsoever. But it is a little odd about the guitar name, yeah? I mean, what are the chances of that happening?

  27. gdare says:

    Very interesting, I have never heard about it. But it would be interesting to know more about that story.Someone said "blues is all about woman"….Kings of the blues:

  28. gdare says:

    Here, they both explained why they sing a blues πŸ˜€

    Man, I love You tube :heart:

  29. gdare says:

    You are so lucky watching them playing live. BB King was in Belgrade about 10 years ago, maybe more, but I missed that one, couldn`t afford money for ticket :awww:Interesting theory it is :up:

  30. edwardpiercy says:

    Wow. Talk about a stage packed with talent. I also listened to the one with BB King, Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, Albert Collins and Jeff Beck.I saw Collins in Dallas, must have been about 1983 or 1984. Also saw Stevie Ray Vaughn at a freebie concert for an electronics show.Well, I think I saw Albert and B.B. give each other a few dirty looks here and there. (Ha! just joking. I have my theory and I'm sticking to it!)

  31. edwardpiercy says:

    And thanks for filling me in on the youTube blues stuff. I guess I should have known they would have that kind of thing, but I guess I just spaced it. I listen to Tori Amos and such more these days. Gotta have Tori bopping her piano or my week isn't complete. πŸ™‚

  32. Abbacus says:

    Cool, interesting post! I have tried to describe (or justify) some of the why behind playing the blues. Having had quite a few musician friends over the years, some being somewhat high-brow about it all, I thought of this explanation: Playing blues is like the old, comfortable swimming hole down the road a way on a warm, summer day. Jazz is like the ocean: beautiful, complicated and deep–but if you're wanting to do much more than wading: you better know what you're doing or you'll be lost and drown. :sing:

  33. gdare says:

    😎 explanationThank you.

  34. studio41 says:

    Amazing musicians.

  35. gdare says:

    Yes they are. I am thinking about making another post about music that has its roots in early blues times – cajun music. I have seen a video of Rosie Ledet and Beau Jocque in You Tube. Unfortunately there are only a few of them, most with bad quality in sound and video. I will see.

  36. studio41 says:

    You always make good posts. I'm sure we will enjoy very much, Darko.

    Thank you Jill πŸ™‚
