Night owl music chat – Hey baby, it’s the 4th of July

Couldn’t in good conscience play the X version of this song, as Exene Cervenka is a total libertarian twit. So, the Dave Alvin version, instead.

Enjoy the rest of the 4th, Obots!

Night Owl Chat – Rest in peace, BB

”The blues has lost its king, and America has lost a legend. B.B. King was born a sharecropper’s son in Mississippi, came of age in Memphis, Tennessee, and became the ambassador who brought his all-American music to his country and the world. No one worked harder than B.B. No one inspired more up-and-coming artists. No one did more to spread the gospel of the blues.

Three years ago, Michelle and I hosted a blues concert at the White House. I hadn’t expected that I’d be talked into singing a few lines of “Sweet Home Chicago” with B.B. by the end of the night, but that was the kind of effect his music had, and still does. He gets stuck in your head, he gets you moving, he gets you doing the things you probably shouldn’t do – but will always be glad you did. B.B. may be gone, but that thrill will be with us forever. And there’s going to be one killer blues session in heaven tonight.”

– President Barack Obama

The blues are not about depression. The blues are about finding joy and life in the face of sorrow. And BB King sang about life and love. In honor of his life, a night owl chat.
