“Many people think that all the blues is, is some guy in the corner, crying in his beer about how he’s been mistreated. The blues is so much more than that. It’s a cosmic expression that lifts you out of your situation to a higher vantage point. It’s true poetry in every sense of the word. The blues has given me a vehicle for my own poetry. I feel at home in this art form. It is at once, down home and also exalted. The poetry of blues artists has always expressed high and mighty ideals, and described dark, and powerful forces, with a limited vocabulary, making it the voice of the people.” – Bill Wharton
