>>61906487 Idk. I hate the white man blues. I was looking at the tracklisting for Beano, and shit like "Ramblin' on my mind" pisses me off. It's 1966 and you've never actually said that before. Stfu posers.
But delta and hill country blues are great. Mississippi John Hurt, Blind Lemon Johnson, Son House, and Robert "Fucking" Johnson are some of my favs.
I thought that I liked blues music but it just seems permanently stuck within a single mindset. You'd think that if they were so depressed and sad about their lives they'd find more creative ways to express that sadness in their lyrics than 'I've got the blues' repeat ad nauseum and 'my 'girl' has left me' tripe. I'm a fan of buddy guy and muddy waters though despite the cliche's. Are there any blues artists who sung non-narrative/poetic lyrics?
>>61907087 Not at all. Did you stop listening to hip hop after the 90s? It's not about being poor, it's about hyper materialism and ego. Maybe Howlin Wolf is kind of like that, but its extreme now, and awful for the African american community. With blues, the poor can empathize. With hip hop, it glamorizes greed so poor people can pretend they're not poor.
>>61907139 Eh, this song is talking about a black man shooting a woman. Nowadays, women would find that threatening, they think its only okay when the cool black man points his gun at a cop or another gangster. Couldn't get away with that kind of song today.
How non-threatening a musician is is VERY important for women.
