USA: Happy Halloween! by Monica Yasher

Posted on 10/31/2009 by Monica Yasher

Would you sale your soul this Halloween?
Enjoy a video I found of the 1986 movie Crossroads.

Wasn't that a great movie? I guess I was liking the blues before I knew the blues even existed!

American Blues News has an exciting announcement this October. We have a marketing director, Maureen Ciedro, to add to our roster. The first thing on Maureen's todo list is a logo. I personally think it is pretty cool, and can't wait to unveil it!

I would like to thank all the artists and record labels who are sending us emails and letting us know what is going on in with their artists and work! From those emails, I have determined that some of those events need to be covered! Keep them coming. I can't answer them all, but some of you know that you have gotten a review or an interview from your efforts! If you have any artists coming to the following areas: New York, Memphis, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, or Dallas, please be sure to let us know you will be in town. If schedules permit, you could see American Blues News covering your event!

November is the time to give thanks. I will offer my tribute for giving thanks for the great blues artists from across the Atlantic, Great Britian. Look for two interviews of Robin Trower. One on his guitar work. The second on his new CD. I also talked to Roger Earl of Foghat. I hear he is a great cook, so I wonder what he will be cooking for Thanksgiving? And, lastly, I will share a great conversation I had with Kim Simmonds of Savoy Brown. Figures my husband found a record of his weeks after I met him! I wish I would have had him sign it!

Next month look for a review of the very talented Zac Harmon, who has been traveling around with Bluzapalooza. We will also be talking to Michael Frank of:


Last month our guest writers were from all over the world. We went to Australia, India, and California. This month, I have a guest writer a little closer to my home, Pittsburgh. You have to catch Izzy and Chris! They are ranking on the blues charts, and Chris has an endorsement on harmonicas, being the great player he is!

This November I am thankful for all the people in my life. Be sure to tell those that you love that you are thankful for them. Logoff and do it right NOW! Life is too short. Until next month....
