Biker Bar Blues

Sunday afternoon

at the crossroads,

two wheels

of chrome warriors

rallying

in the piney woods,

longnecks in hand

sweating ruggedness,

white men

sing the blues —

“What good amid these?”

Wild Horse Pass Resort & Casino in Chandler, AZ — Image by kenne

This past weekend we went to the Wild Horse Pass Resort & Casino to see the Texas blues-rock band, the Fabulous Thunderbirds. This group, which has featured the Vaughn brothers, Stevie Ray and Jimmy Lee in its early days, is lead by one of the best harp players you will find anywhere, Kim Wilson. It was a great evening of rocking blues, which included an impressive display of harp playing by Kim Wilson.

Over the years many great musicians have been in the group. Probably the Vaughn brothers were the best known, but one that my friend, Diunna Greenleaf and I talked about during her recent tour in the Tucson area was Nick Curran — having  just pasted away. A very talented guitar player out of Austin, Diunna had considered Nick to be her lead guitar player some years ago, but she concluded that he was too flamboyant to be a part of her band.

TEXAS BLUES GUITAR MEN

As part of an American Music Series aat Lone Star College, I will be doing a session on Texas Blues Guitar Men tomorrow. There is not way that one can do justice to the many great Blues musicians in Texas. I wasn’t sure where I would start until attending last weeks session conducted my Steve Davis on Sixties Rock-n-Roll, in which he ended with Jimi Hendrix. By doing so, the door was open to begin my session with Hendrix’s version of Voodoo Child, followed by SRV’s version. After beginning with Hendrix and SRV, I will cover Chris Duarte, Albert Collins, Johnny Clyde Copeland, Sherman Robertson, ending with SRV and Copeland doing Tin Pan Alley.  The session will utilize some or all of the following selection on YouTube:
