or, can you get that authentic deep down in the delta blues from a bunch of white guys from Connecticut?


Will powerblues fade with the baby boomers who seem to love it so?

I'd grab Little Miss Zebra Skin by her stripey lapels and be outta there in a hot minute. I know I could do more for her ears than that bunch of clowns on stage.

Can you provide an *actual* example of this power-blues of which you speak? Because your example band is just made up for a movie.

If you're talking about something like this, then I think it'll probably stick around:

Playing power blues is so much fun. Listening to it is such a drag. I've got an electric power blues jam coming up in a couple weeks. I haven't played the stuff (plugged in, with a band, at least) in about three years. I've been building up finger strength, bending strings. I'm gonna put two sets of earplugs in my ears. I'm setting the dials of my very old Boss Super Overdrive to max. Oooh! Do I have soul!

You got Waldo425 on drums! I liked it when the fans were on at the start. Couldn't get past 0:38. Walk past any provincial pub in Britain on a weekend (especially up North) and you'll hear this kind of tedium. I hope the guitarist's tummy trouble cleared up.

No examples I can think of, but there were 2 bands last weekend at the Atwood Summerfest that sounded just like Blueshammer.

And then there's this:

RL Burnside can kind of pull it off, but I can only take it in small quantities.

Didn't really listen then, eh?
The Black Keys = win in my book.
I listened. Hence I stopped listening at 0:38. Tell me, what shards of genius materialised at 0:39? A win in your book? Sir, that's not a book you have, it's a pamphlet!

Vocals, for one. Guess you didn't hear those.
That would be affirmative. Another opportunity missed. Such is life. Keep 'em coming.

Hope their fan club are out in force again. I played the video again and lasted until 0:57.
Didn't get any better. Looks like the 'audience' agreed with me...

Try this bunch...:23:

Wait... we're not talking about T Bone Burnett are we? Because he's awesome.
