    Ok folks Like the Rock Trivia with an added rule or two, IF You pick up the ball, As in answer correctly, you have 24hrs to post your question, and you need to check back often for answers, If you leave your answers hanging for 48 hours and no answer, the ball will get passed
    Questions about blues artists, labels, news and events . Hopefully we have enough blues afficianados to make this fly,
    Ok Open COurt, Somebody serve one up?
    I have a bunch in reserve :naughty:
    no web searching , or web browsing for answers now.

    :Ohno: Hey Don, think my questions were a little to obscure or are the blues lovers a bit scarce around here.

    I'm a die hard blues fan, but that was just too tough for me too- I could only figure out Little Walter, Junior Wells, and Howlin' Wolf, the others were pushing the obscure side

    Great job Eddie. The only one I thought would be a little tough was Slim Harpo. The torch has been passed. :wave:

    siroliver, It's tough to think of a question that's easy but not to easy. If your not familar with Guitar Slim stuff, check him out. You can Guitar Slim all through Jimmy Vaughn's playing.

    Ok, it's been a really long day, so this should be easy.

    Who was the lead guitarist (blues player) that toured with David Bowie in support of the "Let's Dance" album?
