I was watching the grammy awards the other night, and i noticed something. A lot of the songs featured in the show seemed to, in a way, revert back to the era of jazz and big band. With trumpets and dancers and all that good stuff. It looks like music is crossing over itself, just in a new modern form.

This got me thinking. Is there any chance that blues might make a comeback? John Mayer is already out there doing his thing, but the old generation of bluesmen are dying off (unfortunately ). So im hoping that a new generation of blues singers and guitarists will come up, and you know, help put blues back on the map. Pick up the pieced and make something new out of it. Maybe it wont be like the good ol' contemporary blues that we all know and love, but music evolves with time, so why should this be any different?

What do you guys think?

that's true. but it could use a lift. I mean SRV did it in the 80s, maybe it'll happen again.

Nothing comes back, ever.

Influences are rediscovered in a cyclical fashion but the world moves only forward.

Pure delta blues will never be mainstream, but you can hear the influence of blues lives on everywhere. White Stripes, for instance, and they're bloody mainstream too.

If it does make a "comeback" it'll mainly be because of John Mayer.

And Read This.
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

i hope not. if blues is mainstream, it'll be a fashion statement like other genres.

A band is "gay" ???
I take it you mean you don't like them, not they are homosexual.

Grow up.


Dimebag, it's just the perception of someone "leading" a type of music, I'd hate it to become that kinda image, which often happens it music. It makes it sound like no one else plays it, which is mental.

I listen to a lot of Garage Rock, and most of that is blues oriented.
