    Das' my girl!!! I really think she's cool. The real deal fo' shizzle. Young, tough and plays A LOT! That's what rock is made of. Carlos Santana said, Re: Orianthi, It's not just cute anymore." I agree. It's not "just" cute. But it IS cute too!!! And "not just." It can't be easy getting billed as a novelty when your the real article.

    Looked like she has been trying to be a pop star for the last couple of years, with only minor success. Sure can play that guitar though. I'm wishing her nothing but success.

    First heard him in a San Francisco dive, early '80s

    Heard this today.
    Tommy Castro "I may be Broke, But I'm Not Broken"
    His Vocal sounds a lot like Delbert McClinton IMO.
    Not the best recording, but the best I could find.
    The version on the Sirius Blues Channel was much better.

    To skip over the first 90 seconds and go directly to the song click on this link:

    "I May Be Broke, But I'm Not Broken" Tommy Castro Band LIVE - YouTube

    (That trick does not work if you use the VIDEO tags here. I tried.)

    Local boy makes good- Tommy was born and raised here in the Bay Area. Probably the most prominent contemporary blues artist who grew up around here (there are many who moved here like Elvin Bishop.) Here is a good version of "Nasty Habits" from the October 2010 Blues Cruise which incidentally was filmed (see the bottom link.)




    I first heard Tommy on "Comedy Showcase" Saturday nights after SNL in the mid-90's. I'd be listening to that show while learning about guitar amps as I was trying out different mods from the Torres amp book. In interviews Tommy back then said that he came up with his own style because he couldn't copy the blues greats like the 3 Kings and the 2 Alberts- all 4 of them.

    Just like Chris Isaacs and his Silvertones a decade earlier the Tommy Castro Band was known as the hardest working band in the Bay Area- he certainly paid his dues. The first time I saw him was in 2005 and I was really impressed by how tight they were. They were using in-ear monitors which allowed them to have perfect harmonies and perfect timing. They have always played a blend of blues and soul music- 12 bar blues tends to get a bit boring. And while he was very humble about his guitar talents in the mid 90's he has become a very well-respected guitarist. I'd hear live recordings... "Who is that?" "Tommy Castro" "Wow- he is really good!" He is always surprising me with the things that he comes up with.

    Here is the video from the October 2010 Blues Cruise- you can a free copy of it if you pay $6.50 for shipping and handling (I just ordered my own copy.)

    All Jams On Deck DVD | Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise

    I've been tempted to go on one of these blues cruises- there is music somewhere on board 24 hours a day (and quite often in more than one place.) They even have some of the performances piped into the rooms. You can always find a jam going on to listen to or join. The invited artists love the cruises because it sure beats driving from town to town for gigs. The cruises cost something like $1500 or $2000 so they do get paid fairly well with all of that money coming in. Its like a whole season of blues festivals across the country rolled into one.

    Back on my Blues Kick.
    Here's a Robert Cray song I'm not familiar with.
    I have most of his earlier CDs.
    None in the past few years.
    Love to hear him play the Stratocaster.
    Robert Cray "Chicken in the Kitchen"

    That is a great version of Stormy Monday.
    I always think of the AllBros. and Duane when I hear Stormy Monday.
    Here's a version of AllBros later Lineup minus Duane, and D. B.
    With E.C. standing in.

    Robben Ford live in France 2004... "Prison of Love"



    He has definitely taken electric blues to a really high and unique place!

    As Muddy Waters Said, "Blues Had a Baby, and they called it Rock and Roll"
    I think this one applies to both blues and Rock.
    Led Zeppelin, "I can't quit you baby"

    Which reminds me - I'm a huge blues traditionalist - i.e. love the original chicago and texas sounds and especially the west side soul sound and separately T-Bone style. However, I also love and am listening a lot to James Blood Ulmer - his memphis sun sessions (memphis blood) and his new york city blues sessions at electric lady studios (no escape from the blues). He does a superb and very different take on the blues had a baby . . . can't find good you tube videos of him however. You tube says it has no postings but the album song is really fun. I love his original yet "true" take on the blues feel. Not bad for a crazy funky free jazz guy!

    Although it's mainly distorted hammond this shows the evolution of Whole Lotta Love
    Stevie Marriott had a huge voice .. and according to rumor, was considered for Jimmy Pages new band...
    The Small Faces seemed to be more than just a pop band back in the 60's , just before I took an interest in the blues.
    The Small Faces - You Need Loving

    I found this interesting 6 parts - How Britain Got The Blues 01
    Published on Sep 8, 2013
    Was it the drabness of post-war austerity or the influx of blues records coming across by boat? Whatever, this is a film that any blues lover should watch. Featuring the likes of Muddy Waters, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Chris Barber and Paul Jones, this tells the story of how Britain got the Blues and shipped it back to the States.

    Been listening to a lot of the old 60s rock festival music.
    I ran across this by the Paul Butterfield Blues Band.
    This was at the Monterey 1967 Festival.
    1967 was the year I graduated H.S. and went into the Army.
    Viet Nam was going strong and on everyones minds!

    OK so this isn't hard core blues, but blues influenced for sure and IMO Barry Bailey of ARS is one of the most overlooked and underrated guitar players ever.

    2 different versions- same song- two different solos- tone spilling out onto the stage.

    Frank Zappa used to mention this tune as a sort of benchmark. I'm not sure why, but the tone just sounds "angrier" in my car stereo than it does here, but the Youtube still holds up. It's some seriously frantic playing.

    I'm not sure Robin Trower has ever done anything better than this superbly constructed, and very soulful, solo on the first Procol Harum album.

    This is not blues!
    This is supposed to be a Blues Thread this is rock and roll.
    We have other Rock threads, like the 60s and 70s thread.

    But neither is Sony Landreth or Robben Ford, if one wants to apply strict criteria. Indeed, a lot of the contemporary guitar-slingers wouldn't fit in.

    I concur that the chord progression, the little Bach piano breaks, and such, are most definitely NOT "blues". There is no way I could ever mistake them for Willie Dixon. But Trower was, is, and will be, very much a blues player who turns to blues licks - no less than Jeff Beck - and this tune is chock-a-block with them. Listen closely and there is a whole heap of Albert King in there.

    But, to yield a little, how's this for the more familiar. Gotta love that little "whoop!" that forms part of the signature riff.
