“The Best Music Comes From The Bottom Up”
MBR (Mr Blue Roads)
HERE IT IS! OUR INTERVIEW WITH THE ONE AND ONLY MR. BLUE ROADS!
MR. BLUE ROADS IT IS A BIG PLEASURE TO HAVE YOU HERE TODAY AT PLANET SINGER! LET’S START TALKING ABOUT YOUR MUSIC. HOW DID YOU DISCOVER YOUR PASSION AND TALENT? WHEN AND HOW DID YOU START YOUR MUSIC JOURNEY?
I was 15 & outside playing guitar
when I found the Blues Scale. I
thought “Now I can play Lead
Guitar” It was phenomenal. We
played The Rock Showcase in
Atlanta. We were “The Mulls”
I was 16. We opened for “Public
Enemy.”( an earlier band of the
same name that was touring.)
We got screwed over & lied to
at every turn. Our drummer’s
girlfriend was supposed to record
the show. She pushed the button
to record but had, no idea she was being recorded flirting with a guy at her table. so the whole conversation was recorded with our music in the background. Frank then 17 & the drummer AKA Grand Pa – cause he acted like an old man since 4th grade, got so angry he busted the recorder in a tantrum. We got paid well that night so we took the money & recorded in-studio, our 1st time in the studio. The sound was great. The next day I quit my job & decided I’m to be a music artist. I have never looked back.
YOU COLLABORATE WITH SOME OF THE GREATEST ARTISTS IN THE COUNTRY AND ROCK MUSIC SCENE. HOW DOES IT FEEL TO SHARE THE STAGE AND THE STUDIO WITH SOME OF THE BIGGEST NAMES IN THE INDUSTRY?
I felt Blessed & Stressed, When Leon Russell called me over by his white grand piano with his teleprompter built into it, wearing his white top hat, suit, and sunglasses, Leon looked at me saying in his unique Leon Russel voice, tapping his finger to his head “The Mind Goes.” James Burton (Elvis Presley’s guitar player) &, Mark Knopfler (one of the best guitarists in the world.) where there. It was an honor. After Leon’s joking yet serious words I could be myself.
WHICH ARTIST WOULD YOU LIKE TO COLLABORATE WITH IN THE FUTURE?
I’d love to collaborate with Bob Dylan, we keep the same hours.
YOUR TALENT AS A SONGWRITER AND MUSICIAN IS JUST OUTSTANDING, WHERE DO YOU FIND YOUR INSPIRATION?
Real-life experiences are an inspiration. Anything & Everything, I can write all day long, no problem. “The best music comes from the bottom up.” Real hardcore sacrifice, that’s what made the greats.
IF YOU COULD CHOOSE ONE SONG THAT REPRESENTS YOU THE MOST, WHICH SONG WOULD YOU PICK?
“Behind Blue Eye’s” Somebody’s gotta be the Boss, the bad man, ruin the party, deal with it, work the details. The others come in and just gotta play.
YOUR GUITAR IS AN EXTENSION OF YOUR BODY. YOUR PLAYING IS BOTH TECHNICAL AND SOULFUL EVEN DURING YOUR VIRTUOSO MOMENTS ON STAGE. WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE GUITARISTS?
My favs are too many to say but here we go, Richie Blackmore, Allen Collins, Johnny Winter, Jimmy Page, Jimmy Hendrix Buddy Guy, BB King, Chuck Berry, to name a few.
YOUR CURRENT PROJECTS ARE VERY INTERESTING, AND LET ME TELL YOU, YOUR STYLE IS BRINGING NEW FRESH AIR IN A GENRE THAT NEEDS THIS KIND OF NEW ENERGY, TELL US MORE ABOUT IT.
I’m about Southern-style Rock, Outlaw & Blues. Hearing great Classic and Southern Rock plus Outlaw greats fall right into my genre. It’s the Blues that really blends it all. It is Deep and Powerful, My Music is a New Sound of Southern Rock style but holds a flavor of 70’s and 80’s Hard Rock / Southern Rock, I feel it meshes together well. People have responded great. It seems to bring the crowds of all ages so I’m happy.
ARE YOU ON TOUR RIGHT NOW?
We are hitting the road across the USA in April and don’t stop till September, loving every minute of it. Check out www.mrblueroads.com
WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR THE FUTURE?
I try to keep improving as a musician, learn all I can. Theirs always something to learn, keep moving. I’m a lefty so I want to acquire all the left-handed strat guitars that I can.
MR. BLUE ROADS, IT WAS A REAL PLEASURE TO HAVE YOU WITH US TODAY, WE WISH YOU ALL THE BEST FOR YOUR MUSIC!

A Legend ...
September 12, 1931 April 26, 2013"
My years with Country Giant "George Jones"
is forever engraved in memories I carry close.
He's one of a kind ,a True "Legend." George
Jones is Country Royalty. He was a Living
Legend who gave us True Country Music.
Legends living or passed are earned, built and lived. You can't just call yourself a living legend, & many do. It's a term used loose in society making the pro's lose respect for those who choose this desperate act hoping for fame. Show me your decades of chart breaking CD's, your awards, your tours all over the world to hear your music & your music living beyond you for the generations to hear & learn, that is what makes a Legend. His passing is a great loss to us all and I am grateful to have known him. Thanks George for showing & teaching me so much in this industry. Deeply I thank you for the credits you gave me on your CD's, You're a Legendary Giant with multiple awards, I thank you for including me. but mostly for the moments we shared through out the years. I am forever grateful.

Featured interview with Artist Mr Blue Roads
Published on April 15, 2019
How did you come by your stage name?
I was sitting in my bus smoking, thinking about my travels when I toured with George Jones all those years, the long hours on the road, watching the smoke swirl above my head. Staying on the roads so long day and night, I came up with the name “Blue Roads.” “Mr. Blue Roads” followed. I’m the founding member, so it just worked out, especially when I’m solo at music venues.
When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
When I heard Johnny Winter play “Johnny B Goode” I knew I wanted to do that.it’s a hell of a way to make a living, but I’ll do it before I’ll work.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
My sense of style hmmm, too many to list. I’d accredit Country, Rock, Blues and some Jazz to my style. Lead playing would be Chuck Berry, but Jimmy Page is my main influence on guitar, and songwriting. I got to say, Allen Collins is in the mix as well.
On your upcoming project, how did you come up with the concept?
I’ve been listening to Johnny Winter again. I get fresh ideas rolling in Blues & Rock. I’m up all hours playing guitar and writing lyrics till the sun comes up. My latest is “Satanic Woman.”.Hard Core Blue CD I’m working on. My Manager is the inspiration, TY Bella.
What are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
Time is a challenge. Finding it, using it wisely, and especially enjoying it, like when your music is flowing strong, and your band is locked in for the ride. Its a great sensation, creativity pours. To do this job you have to have “The want too.” It’s all that makes it happen. Diving in head first is what it takes. Don’t except no. Keep the passion.
Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?
Yeah, I feel I am. I work at being the best I can be daily. “The best music comes from the bottom up” my quote. Hardcore living and sacrifice made so many of the greats in music. Living life on the road, writing from your own experiences keeps you connected.
What are your plans for the near future?
My plans are to keep improving musically and keep on rolling. Music feeds me daily. I could not live without it noway. I can’t imagine being happy if I haven’t played a gig, wrote a song, produced a CD. Ask any hardcore musician if he can stop. He’ll say hell no.
Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
I thank my Father for working so hard that I could have a guitar and lessons. He busted his ass for me to be able to have the opportunity, and my Mom for her confidence in me, and renting me a guitar to start lessons. She bought my first guitar, a beautiful black Les Paul. I thank God for giving me the talent. I spent my days and nights playing Led Zeppelin while everyone else I knew was out having a good time. I’m glad I did.

"I gotta say one of my proudest moments was working on

Keith Richards, Leon Russell, Jackson Browne, and Waylon Jennings..."
BANDWIDTH DAILY: Congrats on your growth! What inspired your creative path? Blue Roads:
MBR : ( Mr Blue Roads)
Chuck Berry inspired my creative path. The way he played guitar and his songwriting is exceptional and groundbreaking for the time.
BANDWIDTH DAILY: The music business is a roller coaster, what are some of your proudest moments?
Blue Roads: I gotta say one of my proudest moments was working on the George Jones "Bradley Barnes Sessions" with musicians such as Keith Richards, Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, Leon Russell, James Burton.
There is so much more to say. Getting to play Keith Richards Stratocaster was a major thrill. Touring the world with a Legend like George Jones for multiple years, teaching me all I needed to know in the music industry. I was green they called me " a
Babe in the woods."
