Monday Music Moves Me

Photobucket It's been quite a while since I've participated in one of Xmas Dolly's Monday Music Moves Me.  Its nice to be back, my friend. 

Today's I'm swingin in with some good old fashioned blues and soul. 

Lets start with Rory Gallagher was a brilliant Irish-born rock and blues guitarist with the Taste band in the 60s and then solo 70s and 80s.  He was known for his non-stop touring and endless energy on stage. 

This bloke's fear of flying eventually made him use strong sedatives and alcohol to cope.  His liver gave in eventually and after his liver transplant he just never pulled through ...amazing riffs!

John Lee Hooker was an American blues singer, songwriter and guitarist. He was born in Mississippi and he developed his own driving-rhythm boogie woogie style distinct from the 1930s–1940s.  Love his stuff

The Queen of Soul.  I adore everything about this woman!

Have a blues post without including Robert Johnson?  It just wouldn't be right.  This Delta Blues musician allegedly sold his soul to the devil at The Crossrods in Mississippi in exchange for guitar playing powers.

and some blues harmonica

I didn't know Rory Gallagher but everybody else was old friends! Nice Monday mix, Gillian.

I can listen to Aretha Franklin any day though I'm not a huge blues fan.

I wanted to stop by and thank you for the comment on my music blog. Are you leaving a vote for Metallica? I need to make sure so I can add it to the battle count. Or maybe you were just leaving a great comment about a concert you'd seen? Let me know, please.
