    What's your blues name?

    Ever wanted to be a Blues artist. Well, first you need a good name. Here is a good way to start.

    I'm Hollerin' Sugar Jefferson.

    I'm curious, is there another sort of bones?

    I'm Old Baby Jefferson, although I think that sounds more like a member of the Wu-Tang Clan in a Dave Chappelle skit.

    Red "Blues" Green is my real blues name but the name generator says that it's Old Bones Brown.

    I swear several years ago I devised a list very much like that one when responding to a thread Dan started. I had one column with defects like 'blind' or 'shaky', and two other columns, one with good ole boy names like 'Roy' or 'Jeb', and another with common last names like 'Johnson', 'Smith', or 'Lee'

    I can't find it anywhere

    You might just expand that to Roy G. Biv.

    Ladies & Gentlemen. Joining us tonight in the Down Home Blues Lounge...all the way from Carolina. Let's give it up for Skinny 'Bad Boy' Bailey




    I did go to a hole-in-the-wall bar in NYC once and the blues player there was named SlapMeat Johnson.

    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    I always wanted to be Deaf Willie Johnson.

    Alas, according to that chart, I'm Old Back Franklin. Doesn't make sense.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)
