Not dead. Sleepin'.
I don't think it's "Dead" , but , since Honeyboy Edwards passed , about a month ago , I DO feel The Blues is dead. Had a good run . I live in Chicago , where anything that has nothing to do with The Blues gets passed off as the real deal. Some people get close to it , but Honeyboy , and this is just my opinion , was the last of the greats.
As far as Punk Blues is concerned , I think it still has some life left in it , tho' I'm not crazy about some of the things I've heard.....Tijuana Hercules , who've been based in Chicago for at least 10 or 12 years , still play out on occasion , and they've got it. They are the missing link to that Axis of Evil - Howlin' Wolf , Captain Beefheart , Jim Dandy and even Tom Waits (To some degree.). In the 80's ,I was wondering when someone was going to make the connection between Punk and Blues.
I did'nt know , yet , that Msr. Jeffrey Evans and The Gories , the primary founders of this stuff ( Along with Jack O' Fire , a little later.) , were just around the corner , or , to be fair , that Hound Dog Taylor was "Punk Blues" 25 years before people started talking about it....
