Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Lady sings the blues (in her fancy white coat)

Just look at Sister Rosetta Tharpe as she rides into town in her horse and carriage, then blows the minds of those young white Mancunians from a rail platform. And just look at that devil-horned Gibson SG Custom she’s burnin’ up.

All right, technically the lady’s singing gospel and not the blues, but the two aren’t all that different when you think about it. It’s just that with gospel there’s light at the end of the tunnel, and with the blues you know you’re down for good.
