HONEYBOYDescribing his Bluesman life: ” On Saturday, somebody like me or Robert Johnson would go into one of these little towns, play for nickels and dimes. And sometimes, you know, you could be playin’ and have such a big crowd that it would block the whole street. Then the police would come around, and then I’d go to another town and where I could play at. “

Talking Bout The Blues had the honor and pleasure to ask Shein Die, Blues lover and historian, behind the most provocative and telling images of Blues Artists, Culture, and Community a few questions about their journey with the Blues and why it’s important to preserve the rich heritage of the Blues.

Interview

TBTB – 

Please give us a brief background on your Blues journey.

SHEIN DIE  – 

It was because I like Rock n Roll that I decided to explore its

origins.I went ‘all the way back’ and discovered Charlie Patton,

Willie Lee Brown, Son House and Mississippi John Hurt. I knew I would

have to make a pilgrimage to Clarksdale, Mississippi where the Blues

was born ~ Dockery Plantation…

TBTB – 

Do you remember the record you heard that made you fall in love with the Blues?

SON HOUSE describing how he feels when Willie Lee Brown died: ”
“Well, a couple of weeks after I got back to Rochester, I got a telegram from his girl that Willie was dead. I said, “Well, sir. All my boys are gone” That was when I stopped playing. After he died, I just decided I wouldn’t fool with playing any more. I don’t even know what I did with the guitar.”
