SOMETIMES FAKE NEWS HAPPENS. This edition of chicagoBLUESnews includes an inadvertent, very dumb mistake:
The item about the new book, The Blues Dream of Billy Boy Arnold, was not in fact a collaboration between Billy Boy Arnold and Dick Shurman. The interviews were done by Kim Field, who is a writer and musician (Kim Field and the Perfect Gentlemen) based in Portland, OR. Shurman’s only involvement is: 1. reposting a Facebook post and 2. being Field’s friend (I think). My only involvement: A stupid mistake. REAL NEWS: The book is being published in August 2021 by the University of Chicago Press.


NEXT NEWSLETTER: NOV 20, 2020
The online calendar is being updated now and then with online streams and other shows being scheduled.

STAY SAFE AND SANE!
