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
