John Lee Hooker, Born In Mississippi, Raised Up In Tennessee (ABC, 1973)

“Hooker got his first guitar from a traveling bluesman named Tony Hollins, who took a shine to his sister Alice. Hollins had a battered Silvertone six-string he played for Alice on the front porch of the Hooker home while John hovered nearby. Eventually he gave that guitar to John.”

Just your daily reminder that people with vaginas are responsible, one way or another, for so SO much musical beauty. You’re welcome, world.

    First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask
    if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center
    yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Appreciate it!
