Well...the undeniable ability and overwhelming urge to SMACK these eejits, has NOT deserted me .In times past,I had a bit more patience with them, and would try like the dickens to conjure up kindly and generous feelings, regarding their ENTIRELY dumb a**, WRONG-HEADED natures.
Ahh geez. So sorry. You may not BE a musician. I'm talking about MUSIC SNOBS. Course I am. They've been hanging about in abundance for ...gosh, for EONS.
There are THREE types of music snobs that I've personally identified through many years of painstaking, scientific study. They are ALL of the same family...if not species. YOU know. The snobs.
Here's the first type. The annoyingly uppity PURISTS. You're just not folksy, or rocky, or metally, or irishy, or punky, or bluegrassy, or country'eyish, or hard corey, zydecoey, or jazzy, or bluesy, or polka-ee enough for THEM. nope. YOU, have in fact been caught commiting the unruly, unforgivable act of CROSSING THE SACRED GENRE LINE.
This is apparently a criminal offense in some....ummm MANY ridiculous circles. You must NOT mix ANY music types. Does this bizarre edict not remind you of being cautioned endlessly as a child....to fer crikes sake...draw or color WITHIN the lines. We must at all costs...not BLUR.
Let's see...there is indisputably T-BONE BURNETT, who seemed to acquire his t-boney moniker, in 1953, when he was the age of five. Frankly, I would deem this to be the very last time period in which any new t-bone should have been created. AT ALL.
And then there is...I'M QUITE SURE...the original T-bone....and that would be the Texas blues guitarist...T-BONE WALKER. I do believe that he was the ORIGINAL T-bone. That's my theory, and I'm stickin' with it. Walker's middle name was Thibeaux, On his first recording...in 1929, when he put out a single for Columbia, he was called Oak Cliff T-Bone. Oak Cliff was the town he lived in. That 45' had "Wichita Falls Blues" on side A, and "Trinity River Blues" on side B.
HAVE WE GOT THAT CLEARED UP NOW? LET'S HOPE SO.
