Smokestack Lightnin' Home Page -- The Blues Profile Page

Blues Genres can be a very confusing topic. What is considered Blues Rock to one person may be considered just plain rock and roll to another. Also, many artists cross over and play many different genres of blues or even other types of music over their career or even on the same CD. One CD may contain 2 or more genres. Genres have also changed over the years, with new genres created.

Wilipedia has done an excellent job in describing different genres. I want to first give the hard workers over at Wiki full credit for all the information contained in the links below. I just copied the information over and reformatted it and added links to the different artists that are listed on these pages and in my profiles section.

The object of course is to continue the expansion of the most comprensive blues website in the world.
