Has anyone read the book Escaping the Delta: Robert Johnson and the Invention of the Blues? I'm 15 pages into it and already it gives me a different standpoint on blues. Anyone else read it? If so, please discuss.

EDIT: yea, so far its pretty much how blues was made, pretty wild. It wasnt really called blues until it was mainstream and became pop. I never thought of blues really as "mainstream." That pretty much covers it, like i said, im only 15 pages into it. The name blues was like a marketing hook sort of deal, it was "cool" so the man would slap it on anything to sell.
If you want to jam in/around Mooresville NC message me.
