    Not on PBS here, but thanks for the tip.


    Yeah same here. Here at 90 I have some show on PBS about some transgendered dude.

    Well Dick, it's got a good beat, and I could dance to it, so I give it a 10!
    I have opinions of my own,strong opinions but I don't always agree with them.

      Very cool show. Mick did a great version of "Miss You". Jeff Beck was amazing as usual as well as Gary Clark Jr. Could have heard a bit more of Derek Trucks. You can tell Obama loves guitar music.

          Mick was a little lost around the "Puerto Rican girls are dying to meet you" part. Well, that's rock n roll.

              Damn! Listen to them P90's go! Catfish Blues is one of my favorites and Gary Clark, Jr kicked ass!

              Need to start shopping for another semi to put P90s in.

                I dug Gary Clark Jr. A fresh approach without straying too far. Jeff Beck, while doing his usual bizarre/amazing whammy stuff, wasn't 'bluesy' AT ALL. It WAS a Blues program. Jeff was erratic at best. I would have liked to have seen Jeff play on a Tele relying only on his fingers. I liked Warren Haynes and Susan Tedeschi dueting on the Etta James number. Trombone Shorty also deserves some praise. Jagger was energetic but ........

                  Now why would they film it there during an election year? I dont know about you but I think Obama missed his true calling...as an (event / entertainment) promoter. He can spin anything and make it come out in his favor even if it's the truth or not

                    Every politician in a government that purports to be a democracy is abolutely pandering to get votes.

                    That said, this administration has hosted music at the whitehouse throughout the term, not just this year.

                      I enjoyed the show for the most part, although it did seem a bit ironic that a bunch of white guys were playing blues for a black president.
                      I thought paper covered rock?
                      Nah, rock flies right through paper.
                      What beats rock?

                        For those who couldn't see this great show, video and non-broadcast material is at this link. Those of you who are upset at seeing white musicians perform or black presidents can watch only what they want.

                          I was trying to listen to Beck but Buddy Guy wouldn't stop playing when it was Beck's turn. Not cool.

                            All in all, a great show. Sad to see BB so frail - in his prime he was the best. I like Mick, but I think they gave him too much time. Buddy is still great, Beck is an amazing guitarist, but a little too 'hard rock' for a blues show. It's good to see a young black guy like Gary Clark getting into some pretty gutbucket stuff, however I personally don't dig the sound he gets out of the Casino. Perhaps my favorite performance was the Tedeschi, Trucks, Haynes "Id Rather Go Blind' - really sweet stuff!

                                Agreed. And a note to Mick, Miss You isn't really blues either.
