Topic: MRI Conversion

Expanding the World of JB....
Had an MRI this morning for a shoulder injury and as I was being stuffed in the tube they stuck a set of earphones on my head and asked, "What would you like to listen to?".   I said of course anything from JB.  Naturally they said, "Who?", and my response was of course, "The greatest musical artist you never heard of!".
When they pried me out of the tube, I was asked, "How have we never heard of him....great music... can we find him on You Tube?"  (Disregarding how I could possibly know why they have not heard of him), I told them that typically when people think of Blues or Blues Rock, they envision someone with a guitar singing about every bad thing that could happen to a person and why hope is dead.  Clearly not the case for Mr. B, because if his music doesn't get your heart pumping....you are already dead and just don't know it.  As to the question of whether Mr. B is on You Tube, I assured them that actually You Tube was created just for him, but not to go on it and find him because it was like drinking those extra 12 drinks you should have refrained from.....where you wake up 4 days later not knowing where the time has gone....but having thoroughly enjoyed the time lost.
In short....a conversion occurred and we have new members of the club of relishing in the wonderful world of heavenly music.

love hearing these stories....my latest similar is i met two folks in the Home depot parking lot who commented on my BONAWHO tag and my stickers so got chance to tell them about Joe and had a copy of Blues of Desperation with me for them to check out...and it definitely made my day that day

So you keep extra CDs in your car to give to strangers??  That's street teaming at its finest!

Love your new avatar, so clever and apropos!

Re: MRI Conversion

lol not exactly...i do sometimes buy extras to give away but they asked if i had anything on my playlist to play so he could check it out...I don't have a smart phone...
I do though make a few copies of cds when i get them because i am somewhat careless with them and scratch them up etc so this was a copy i made for myself..not intended for giving away/duping releases. i do buy a lot though...
unfortunately the cd I passed to him was scratched but i told him that...it was a good feeling moment more just for the random conversation / meeting of other people who appreciate things like stickers on a vehicle and vanity tags etc...than the sharing Joe...but that part was cool too big_smile
