Blues Jam

Chicago Blues Jam

The blues jam story begins when our boy packs a suitcase and guitar and heads down to the train station... thoughts of Robert Johnson runnin through his head... looking to find bright lights and fast women, he boards a train that's Chicago Bound.

The train pulls into the station and our boy is all alone... nobody came to meet him... he winds up spending the night on a cold bench with the panhandlers and a case of the Blues SO Bad.

After a sleepless night, it's 6:30 AM. Our boy puts his guitar in a locker and goes out for a walk in the windy city... and who does he run in to walkin down the street? Why if it isn't Buddy Guy lookin' for a place to buy a 1/2 Pint.

Well, our boy wastes no time telling Buddy Guy, "I can play guitar better than Albert Collins..." and Buddy Guy goes, "Ah, ahhh... I'm sure you can" and then he says, "Hey Man, tell you what... come on down to the blues jam tonite and show me some Ice Pickin'.

Talk about cloud nine... our boy can't wait to tell his friends back home about meeting Buddy Guy and sitting in with the band at the blues jam. He thinks to himself... "This is the best thing that happened to since meeting that girl last summer out on Highway 49.

Back at the train station, our boy takes his guitar out of the locker and and starts running down his licks... his mind running wild... he's gonna show Buddy Guy and everybody at the blues jam he's cool man... like a V-8 Cadillac.

Well, it's almost showtime and our boy is rarin' to go thanks to a few drinks he had at the bar. He's waits and WAITS... and sure enough Buddy Guy calls him up on stage. Our boy grabs his guitar, feels for his pick and... Lord have mercy... he feels lost in a funky Blue Midnight.

On the train home, our boy is thinkin what to tell his friends about his big trip to Chicago... in the end he decides to just tell 'em the truth.... "Yeah, and after I sat in with Buddy Guy at the blues jam, he asked me to join the band, begged me in fact... said life on the road gonna be a helluva Roller Coaster!
