  1. Now I know that the popularity of blues has sorta fallen in the past decade or so, partly due to the advent of new talentless music that has flooded the market in droves. But that ain't no goddamn excuse for not having a blues appreciation thread in the Hall. So get your shit together blades, and let's get this thread a rollin'!
