Remembering Bobby Blue Bland
Yesterday, I learned that we had lost another Blues legend – the incomparable Bobby “Blue” Bland. Bobby was a true innovator, and was one of those who combined Blues and Gospel with R&B as it made its way onto the music scene. I can tell you, I’ll never approach performing Stormy Monday Blues in quite the same way. The same goes for Turn On Your Love Light – which, by the way, I had the honor of performing this past weekend.
Join me, if you will, in a prayer for Bobby Blue Bland. May his light forever shine.
