Blues for the next generation
Now, the young people don’t know nothing about it. I know satellite radio plays blues, but we need more than that. I tell everybody I would love to hear Muddy Waters twice a week. I’m not telling you to play him all day, all night—just play him. Let the young people know where it all started.

Carrying the torch
After we lost the great B.B. King and all of the great oneswho I got all of my lessons fromI thought I owe all of them the respect of saying, ‘Let me see, can I just try and keep it alive?’

Music for everyone
If you listen to the lyrics of the blues, if it don’t hit you, it hits someone you know. The blues comes in all denominations—it comes with your family, with your lover, with your friend.
