From what I:ve heard about the blues:

Blues cars are Chevies, Cadillacs and broken-down trucks.
Other acceptable Blues transportation modes include Greyhound buses and southbound trains.

Walkin plays a major part in the Blues lifestyle.

So does fixin to die.

Blues don:t travel in Volvos, BMWs, or SUVs.
Jet aircraft and state-sponsored motor pools ain:t even in the running.

Excellent names for female Blues singers: Sadie, Big Momma, Bessie, or Fat River Dumpling.

Excellent names for male Blues singers: Willie, Joe, Little Willie, Lightning, or Big Willie.

Singers with names like Muffy, Sierra, Auburn, Alexis, Gwenyth, Sequoiz, Brittany or Rainbow are not permitted to sing the Blues, no matter how many men they shoot in Memphis.
