Why Blues Singers Should Be Named After Presidents....

Posted by rockindomp3

I don't have anything to say today, except blues singers were better when they named 'em after presidents--- as seen above, we have Muddy Waters (McKinley Morganfield)
and Howlin' Wolf (Chester Arthur Burnett). If you plan on raising a blues singer, here's a good formula for naming the little bugger--- part one: a physical deformity or
handicap, part two: something to eat, part three: the name of a president. For example, Bowlegged Potato Carter. Or how about Ugly Pumpkin Adams. Anyway, the above clips are from the footage D.A. Pennebaker shot at the Newport Jazz Festival, I think the Muddy clip was '62 and the Wolf was shot in '66, but don't quote me on that, I'm too lazy to look 'em up. Just enjoy 'em.....
