Has this ever been tossed about by the band?

January 15, 2013

Was wondering if the guyzz have ever thought about doing an album with covers of blues tunes from their favorite blues artists. I know they do a few anyway(i.e. Dust My Broom, Future Blues , One Foot In The Blues etc) but I would love to see a 12-15 track album with covers of Jimmy Reed, Lightnin' Hopkins, Hound Dog Taylor and others. Hound Dog Taylor's tone is as close to BFG as you will get from an old blues artist. I could just see BFG remaking Hound Dog's "My Baby's Coming Home" ZZ style. It would be a killer!!!!!! {:)>>>>

If you guys are reading this, please consider! Could be an album to cherish. Potential title for the album- "Scattered, Smothered, and Covered"

Potential ideas:
"My Baby's Coming Home" - Hound Dog Taylor
"Look On Yonder's Wall" - Hound Dog Taylor
" Movin' On Out Boogie" - Lightnin' Hopkins
" You Shook Me" - Willie Dixon
Anything by Jimmy Reed

    Thats a pretty cool idea. I've read that BFG has a solo blues album in the wings. Maybe that will use some of these great tracks!!
