Overview
Never has the idiom of the blues music been as important to the world’s psyche as it is right now. Engulfed by uncertain and constantly-changing social, political and economic times, the blues can do more than just serve as unobtrusive background music for the soundtrack of our lives. It can become a virtual lifeboat to help carry our souls through the turbulent and uncharted waters we all are forced to navigate on a daily basis. As such, we should forever be thankful that the blues have somehow found a way to grow and prosper, even in the face of all the adversity that it has had to overcome all on its own. Consider this book a snapshot look into the lives and the times of some of the blues men and women that are not only responsible for helping to create the very language of the blues, but who are also toiling at great length to make sure that language never gets forgotten. This is their stories, in their own words. This is Blues in Modern Days.

About the author
Terry Mullins is a journalist and contributing writer to Blues Blast Magazine. He hails from the same funky swath of the universe where Johnny Cash, Son Seals and Sister Rosetta Tharpe were born – and where Bear Bryant, Bill Clinton and Sam Walton were groomed for world dominance. Winner of a couple of handfuls of Arkansas and Missouri Press Association awards, this is the first book project that the former record store owner and lifelong music fan has undertaken.
