No End To the Blues


Nashville guitarists Johnny Jones, "Nick" Nixon and Scotty in 1995

In 1995 Scotty recorded a song with his friends James 'Nick' Nixon, Johnny Jones and Billy Cox,  The song "Over 50 Blues" was written by Nick.

Nick, though a guitar player, considers his voice his main instrument.  Though he'd been in and around the Nashville R & B scene since the early '60s he didn't begin recording until much later.   In 2000 he won the international "Keeping The Blues Alive" award and in 2002 released an album on the Black Magic Label called "No End To the Blues".  The title song is one that Scotty gave Nick the idea for, and he listed Scotty as co-writer. Scotty has also recorded this song for his next CD, "Then & Now", with Nick and Willie Rainsford doing the vocals.

Johnny Jones first got his exposure to Blues in Memphis at age 13 before moving to Chicago in the '50s.  He and his band "The King Casuals" used to work regularly with Freddie King and Junior Wells.  Jimi Hendrix and Billy Cox were founding members of the King Casuals and though Johnny and Jimi weren't in the band together while in the Nashville area they used to play together.   After moving back to Nashville Johnny became a session player but later played guitar with Bobby Bland.
