I Don’t Even Like Blues That Much
I don’t even like the blues that much, but I will sit and listen to Scott Ainslie play the blues as often as you let me.
He sings about love gone wrong in a hundred different ways, tells the stories behind the songs, talks about the history of the blues…
All the while you can feel that he is loving all those messed up people (himself included) whose love has gone wrong, and honoring everything they do right, and lovingly laughing at it all.
You sit there feeling like all the heartbreak in your own life is going to be OK because yeah, life is like that, but it’s so good, too.
That is the kind of music I like.
