During the 70's and 80's, this new blues sound began to take shape.
BluesRock artists like Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush, Humble Pie, Pat Travers, Foghat, Robin Trower, Montrose, Jeff Healey, Colin James, Stevie Ray Vaughn and many more began to blend classic blues riffs with power chords that took the genre to a whole new level.
Since then, the soul of bluesrock music has been pushed aside by slickly produced, formulaic, new country songs and computerized pop and rap music.
But maybe that's the way it should be.
Blues music and rock and roll was and always will be "rebel" music.
It's not mindless music for the masses.
It's for the hard working men and women who face each daily struggle and challenge with soulful strength, "scars of life" experience and spiritual wisdom.
That's why this new killer version of "Crossroads" is my salute to you.. the warriors of the BluesRock Revolution.
