Have you all ever heard of this little music genre called "blues"? Because it's conspicuously absent from your lists in the Dec. 28 issue ["Music Top 10s
," Dec. 28]. Seriously? In a city that's home to Antone's, Eric Tessmer, Chris Layton, Ruthie Foster, and Gary Clark Jr. – just to name a few? Where Paul Oscher plays at the Continental Club weekly? This little genre is the foundation for pretty much all other types of music.
What an egregious oversight.
If you need a writer to cover the blues, I hereby volunteer my services. Contact me to discuss my qualifications. I will make damn sure the blues isn't overlooked again.
