Why Blues Singers Should Be Named After Presidents....

I don't have anything to say today, except blues singers were better when they named 'em after presidents--- as seen above, we have Muddy Waters (McKinley Morganfield)
and Howlin' Wolf (Chester Arthur Burnett). If you plan on raising a blues singer, here's a good formula for naming the little bugger--- part one: a physical deformity or
handicap, part two: something to eat, part three: the name of a president. For example, Bowlegged Potato Carter. Or how about Ugly Pumpkin Adams. Anyway, the above clips are from the footage D.A. Pennebaker shot at the Newport Jazz Festival, I think the Muddy clip was '62 and the Wolf was shot in '66, but don't quote me on that, I'm too lazy to look 'em up. Just enjoy 'em.....

Bowlegged Potato Carter.

That would be Bo Carter, right?

No, I made that up as an example of how my blues naming formula works. It could have just as easily been Bald Okra Nixon.
