    Lead Belly is another guy that deserves props. He was a pioneer in a number of ways. He had a manager and a "brand" including having a costume which was a black and white stripe convict suit. I just love Mississippi Delta blues and this guy is among the kings. There's not much more American than Delta Blues.

    You've probably heard this song by another contemporary artist.

    For extra credit, can you guess the time signature?

    @CodeMonkey won't guess at the time sig but since I couldn't find the William Shatner version :) here's the Tom Jones rendition.

    Seeing your reply there about Shatner and it being Tom Jones I wasn't sure. I thought you must of been joking and was worried at the fact that I can't unhear something. Also, there's no "I don't like this" feature. So it was a double risk.

    But I couldn't have been more surprised. That is really awesome. Thanks!!

    There's always the inappropriate button, especially useful for any tune sung by William Shatner. :cool: But yeah, I know about the danger of songs you can't unhear.

    On another note: My son turned me on to a band this morning called Phantogram. Don't care much for their songs but their singer, Sarah Barthel, is definitely hot.

    Here is a fun one. Two guys / one guitar playing pipeline. It's Stevie Ray Vaughn and his little brother Jimmy. During the last year or so of Stevie's life he went on tour with Jimmy's band the fabulous Thunderbirds (who recorded "ain't that tough enough" which is a pretty good song). Anyway, this was part of one of those performances. Also, the album that Jimmy and Stevie cut together is called "family style". it's a really good. Linked a playlist below. I can only imagine what life was like growing up in the Vaughn household.

    Personal note: I got to see Stevie Ray live in 1985. It was in a very small venue, McDonald arena at Missouri State University. It's the only event I've ever heard of at that auditorium before or since. Anyway, it was a very intimate concert with a lot of interaction, calling out fav songs, etc. The guy is/was a real guitar players guitar player. Amazing what he could make his strat do.

    Good post CM. Back when I first heard SRV I remarked to my wife "Meh, I can play as good as he can." She giggled, rolled her eyes and still reminds me of that stupid remark all these years later. It was a stupid thing to say.

    I saw Tesla with the Red hot chili peppers at Big surf in Tempe AZ in '89 i think it was. Bizarre venue. considering its a water park. Lol. It was pretty cool though. At night with a fake beach.

    Every single song that this guy wrote is treasure but here are a couple of clips that I'm fond of. They're from a live performance of Jim Croce. I very much enjoy seeing him and listening to him speak. He's just such a "real guy", if you know what I mean. The set ups for the songs are funny and interesting. Bet you didn't know he was a truck driver.

    Always liked him as well but like Ronnie Van Zant he died in a plane crash. He was only 30. Harry Chapin was another singer-songwriter that perished too young at the age of 38. RIP Jim and Harry.

    And so many more. If there is a heaven, they've got a hell of a band.
