Movie Cadillac Records
the real Muddy Waters
We watched the movie CADILLAC RECORDS last night. It was a good movie about the history and the growing pains of the Blues and Rock and Roll.
If you have listened to the blues very much you probably know the music of people like Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf, Etta James, and Little Walter.
Also you might know the weaving of the Blues and the white man’s Rock and Roll – the weaver’s name was Chuck Berry…. Chuck Berry was probably the first step of races coming together to enjoy something together.
At the beginning it said it was a true story and I believe it, based on the little I read about of Robert L. Johnson, Muddy Waters, Etta James, and Chuck Berry.
I think the CADILLAC RECORDS was well done and the movie was just like the authentic blues. Beyonce Knowles was great too, as the others in the cast were.
I’ll give it a thumbs up.
