Overheard on the street ...

-- Hold it right there, son. Stop it right now--you got no right to sing the blues!
-- But I can assure you I have, officer. Here is my authorization certificate, signed by B.B. King.
-- Hmm, yes, this is B.B. King's signature. Sorry, son.
-- That's alright, officer; you're just doing your job. geek

I was given to understand that women that have the right to sing the blues are named "Sadie," "Bessie" or "Big Mama," and that women named "Heather," "Chelsea," or "Tiffany" will not be allowed to sing the blues, no matter how many men they shot in Memphis.

But now it comes out that women named "Cyndi" have the right to sing the blues Shocked

Billie Holiday had more right to sing the blues than most:

I vote for giving Jack Teagarden the right to sing the blues:

Under no circumstances will fashion-model vampires named Erika, Tara, or Buffy be permitted to sing the blues, no matter how conflicted their motivations and desires might be. bounce

Big Mama had a right to sing the blues because she'd been lied to and cheated on by lyin' cheatin' no-good lowdowns. Also she's been broke and hungry and ragged and dirty, too, and then got really sick.

Also, because her name is "Big Mama."

And if this ain't the blooz ... as if it ain't:

The rule book also stipulates that anyone named "Pinetop" that has to give up the guitar because of a hand injury inflicted by a chorus girl shall thereafter have the right to play blues piano:

My first reaction is NO, because I saw Willie in the Great State of HI, and now he has fled to CA. So Lahaina wasn't good enough for him? bounce

Meanwhile, Ginger Johnson had to move from the West bank of the Mississippi to Hana to carry on in his place:

That is news to me. I am pretty certain he still lives on Maui. Has a bar there. Just comes to the mainland so fans who can't make it to Hawaiian Islands get a chance to see him. So is Willie a Blues player?

I believe he must have a Bluesman First-Class Certificate from the BB-King Certification Authority.

I might have been wrong about Willie being an ex-patriot, idk.

But George Kahumoku is the one who sends me an e-mail every time he schedules a gig, so that I don't have to ever miss out. Very Happy
