The presidential faces on the real Mount Rushmore were chosen because they all played important roles in American history. Our first Mount Bluesmore will use the same approach.......four faces that played an important role in the development of the blues as it is today. While you read about who I picked and why, take the time to figure out who your four faces would be on this particular version of Mount Bluesmore and why. In the future, we will look at other versions of the monument, if you'd like. It could end up being a fun topic with lots of discussion.
There you have it.....my Significant Figures of the Blues Mount Rushmore. Now, of course, your versions could vary quite a bit from mine, and that's part of what makes the blues so special. No two people come to the Blues from the same direction, but once here, we almost all end up headed in the same direction, listening to many of the same artists.
Friday Blues Fix would love to hear who your residents of Mount Bluesmore would be.
