Three Kings of Blues

The Three Kings of Blues (Blues guitar more specifically): Freddie King, B.B. King, and Albert King. There's only one left. Blues more generally is a dying art. Another American original art that's disappearing. There aren't many great musicians around playing raw blues anymore. Taj Mahal and a handful of others are still going, but there isn't much of a next generation after that. The same seems to be happening with Jazz, although there are a number of programs (not enough) that still teach this art. America seems to be losing its culture. The problem is made worse by the fact that school systems are cutting back on programs for the arts.
