 Here's your Blues Quiz! Choices are below
 By Glenn Changar of Patti & the Hitmen

A. This former Muddy Waters sideman is the headliner these days, and prefers "Walkin' By Myself."

B. Texas Shuffleking who fears nothing, except "Raid" perhaps.

C. This Blues crooner often tours with B. B. King, and his travels always take him "Further On Up The Road."

D. This legendary St. Louis "Soul Serenader" gave Fontella Bass her start.

E. This St. Louis piano player must really "Be Good," because Billboard Magazine currently sports a full-page petition (signed by Eric Clapton and Keith Richards, among other notables) requesting his induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

F. This trio from Columbia, Mo., likes to take their Chevy on "Dangerous Curves."

G. This funky Bluesman is always "Strokin'" the audience to greater excitement with his first hit "Chicken Heads."

H. Former sideman for Chester Burnett will have you Howlin' for more.

I. This "Killer" gets the audience hot when he throws out those "Great Balls of Fire."

J. This Louisiana-born Alligator Records artist strikes "Bayou Lightning" with his unique brand of swamp boogie.

K. Patriarch of the St. Louis Blues community, this gentleman has the persistence of a "Mule," recording in each of the last eight decades, and has performed with such legendary Bluesmen as Robert Johnson, Roosevelt Sykes, and Robert Nighthawk, among other notables.

L. The stage gets crowded when this crooner requests the audience to "Stand By Me."

M. While not legitimately a Blues band, this local-based alternative-country band has hit it big, and deserves to be on this list, if for no other reason, than the fact that they pissed off right-wing lunatic Rush Limbaugh, who smashed their record on his show.

N. While this "Strong Persuader" loves the limelight, he advises his audience to "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark."

O. This fortunate "Swamp Boogie" piano player/vocalist sang back-up for Otis Redding for several years, and accidentally missed a flight to the next gig, which went down, killing Redding and four members of the Bar-Kays.

P. The youngest Bluesman ever to adorn the cover of Blues Review Magazine, this teenager just wants you to "Lie To Me."

Q. "Who's Making Love"? It might be you, if so cut a rug while this musician sings "Disco Lady."

R. Founding guitarslinger of Roomful of Blues, and short-timer in The Fabulous Thunderbirds, this regal musician tears it up Rhode Island style.

S. Before reverting back to their Blues roots, these guys produced the best rock harmonica song (Whammer Jammer) of all time. (Of course, that is just my opinion, but then again, I'm writing this quiz.)

T. Former guitarist for Los Fabuloso Thunderbirds, he taught little brother Stevie Ray his first guitar licks.

U. This is the most recognized Bluesman worldwide. He has maintained one of the most grueling tour schedules of all time (In 1954, he played 342 gigs). It's no wonder he is the "King of the Blues."

V. If you disagree with this funkster's politics, take it up with Parliament. He believes in "One Nation Under a Groove!"

W. This former Stray Cat was seen strutting it in Columbia, Mo., a few summers ago, but don't look for a trio line-up in this incarnation.

X. When your father is the "King of Zydeco Music," you had better be able to two-step, and this artist fills his Dad's shoes admirably.

Y. It's a rare St. Louis appearance for this Famous Flame, and you know his saxophone will be red hot.

Z. This is the stepson of the man who sold his soul at the crossroads, and he bears not just Step-Dad's (who taught him guitar) playing style, but his name also.
