Music Passion

Hey, it’s September and time for all music lovers to party with adollyciousirony at http://allaboutlemon.com/music-passion/  

Thank you to Jazfagen (winner of last month’s music passion) for choosing “Blues” as September’s theme http://catseyesk.wordpress.com/2012/08/31/music-passion-september-theme-blues/

I’ve found this a really hard one because there are so many brilliant songs and instrumentals dating back to the origins of Blues in 1890, up to our contemporary Rap Blues. But after much deliberation, I stopped my time machine in 1970, to honour the legendary Jimi Hendrix, whom I can personally claim to have heard doing a live performance of my music passion “Earth Blues”.

    • Indeed I did, and watched him gyrate around the stage in his tight hipsters and squirm around on the stage floor, playing his guitar with his toes and teeth. I will never forget the experience as long as I live. Shame he didn’t live longer, though, although the young death of such a genius has freeze-framed him in time in his own version of immortality.

  7. Nice! Jimi Hendrix took the Blues and injected them with steroids! The result was always a WOW! I envy you for having seen him – that must have really been incredible.

    • That’s a brilliant and apt description of what Jimi did to the Blues. And, yes, it was incredible seeing him. It was as if he was plugged into the National Power Grid. I don’t think somebody could keep inputting and outputting energy at such a rate for too many years without self-destructing. He was like a neutron star.
