Willie Dixon
I am the blues
I am the blues
The whole world knows
I've been mistreated and misused.
Dixon quotes
That's the reason I always say about music, the blues are the roots and the other musics are the fruits. Without the roots, you have no fruits so it's better keeping the roots alive because it means better fruits from now on.
According to Biblical history and all of the history of the world, the blues was built in man from the beginning. The first thing that came out of man is the blues because, according to the Scriptures, when God made man, man was lonesome and blue.

Dixon Willie quotes
The blues is the roots; everything else is the fruits.
