Chattanoogas own Empress of the Blues, Bessie Smith, is in GQ again. She appeared a while back in their introduction to the blues, and shes back this month in their guide to the hottest song lyrics. She appears not once, but twice, for her Youve Got to Give Me Some and Empty Bed Blues. Other contributing artists include: Prince, Aerosmith and Starland Vocal Band.
Bessie puts wannabe bathroom talkers like Nelly and D4L to shame. Modern radio, turns out, isnt dirty; its just nauseatingly unoriginal.
