Nichols is Getting the Blues

Posted by



It's all very well for Trotter to boast of a free copy of Steve's new book, Getting the Blues. Nice one!  But i bought my copy mate just to add to Steve's 401K! Now, my claim to fame is a visit to hear B. B. King in Jackson, Mississippi, with Steve last summer at some questionable joint in the down-town area. And a right couple of charlies we were.

Have to confess, though I own several thosuand CDs, not one of them could be labelled "blues" unless I include Wotan singing, "Leb' wohl, du kühnes, herrliches Kind!" as he binds his errant daughter, Brünnhilde, to the rock before the fire-god, Loge, kindles the flame around her. That's blues alright!

Steve's book is a wonder in itself. It even includes some blues lyrics written by him! 

I'm off to learn some blues lingo and get up to speed.  You should do the same!

Well done, Steve!
