Classic Blues Music Quiz


Classic Blues Music Quiz – 12 Questions featuring artists such as John Lee Hooker, Elmore James and BB King. Do you know who originally had a hit with “Crossroads”? Have you any idea what band Stevie Ray Vaughan was a member of?

Many years ago my Grandfather suggested that we should listen to the album “Count Basie Plays The Blues”. I eagerly agreed and still remember the sound of the gramophone needle made as it came into contact with the long play record. Seconds later, from out of a crackly speaker, a style of music I’d never heard before. Even though I was still young I became a lifetime fan of Jazz and Blues Music. 

The lyrics below come from a John Lee Hooker song that features in The Blues Brothers movie. It’s one of my favourite scenes of the film and it’s well worth a watch. 

Boom, boom, boom, boom
I’m gonna shoot you right down
Knock you off of your feet
And take you home with me
Put you in my house
Boom, boom, boom, boom
