Tags: Dan Aykroyd, SEC, South Dakota
Finally, Friday. Sure this weekend’s SEC games are mostly trash, but at least it’s the weekend. Can I get an amen on that one?
We’ve got headlines, news and full game previews on the way for you. But first one of the best blues bands ever put together. Really. The Blues Brothers were viewed as a joke by many a moviegoer, but Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi took their music seriously and they set out to create one of the best collections of blues musicians to ever tour the country in the modern era. We’re talking legendary players, folks.
So to kick off the day, here’s a little “B Movie Box Car Blues” from a group that drew laughs from audiences and raves from critics and fellow musicians. (And for the record, Dan Aykroyd’s syndicated “House of Blues Radio Hour” is one of the reasons yours truly became a true blues junkie. Many thanks, Elwood.)
“Caught a ride into South Dakota, with two girls in a light blue DeSoto. One’s name was Jane, the other one plain, but they both had racin’ motors.”
Songwriter Delbert McClinton deserves a hat tip, too. Now stand by for news…
