Anticipatin' the Blue - I am a lifelong blues aficionado. It began when I was a small child in Chicago, listening to AM radio on my babysitter Liz' hand-held transistor while walking home from school. When I heard the amazing "Walk On By" by Dionne Warwick, it made my heart beat faster. Tears formed in my eyes, and I loved it. Technically, this might not have been a blues song, but it was blues the way Dionne sang it. Before I was of legal drinking age (don't tell anyone) I was hanging out at Kingston Mines and Blues on Halsted, catching every unknown band that I could. By the time I was in my early twenties, I had discovered the now-defunct Biddy Mulligan's on Sheridan Road. Every night was a new kind of Nirvana for me as I heard Otis Rush, Screaming Jay Hawkins, and Sugar Blue. My ex-boyfriend, Matt, once shot pool with Bo Diddley in the back room. I don't remember who won.
