Wow!!!! This is a cool video and shows how Taylor is part of the blues scene. Shemika Copeland and Keb Mo joining Taylor Hicks on stage. Pretty cool! The quality is a little bouncy, but it is worth the watch. Also some of the comments on Youtube about the video are pretty funny. It is obvious that the people with the negative comments about Hicks, have no clue what the blues are, or why Shemika Copeland came on stage to sing with Taylor. First he invited her up, and second, she came up. That says a lot, because if she didn't respect his talent she wouldn't have come up on stage. Also, we don't compete, or as they said in the old days "cut heads" not as blues players. We support one another, because we realize just how few of us our out there playing the music. Furthermore, the beauty of the blues is how we can improvise with each other. Once you have learned all the forms of blues, and have learned how to solo, then you can sit in with any band. However, to paraphrase Muddy, it takes seconds to learn, but a lifetime to master:-)
Enjoy this video, because someone caught a magic moment in Chicago, and it is really what the blues is all about. People coming together, and working together, to make beautiful music!
