I am a 64 year old married man, who was born and lives in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England, and has a life long interest and passion for popular music in all its many guises. In recent years, my input to Wikipedia has concentrated on creating, enhancing, expanding and referencing many music related, and other miscellaneous articles.
I sometimes describe myself as a pop historian. If no one will believe that somewhat dodgy, promotional and dubious claim, I am definitely now a 'Grandmaster Editor'. So there - suck on that one if you will.
Just drop me a line, either via Wikipedia, or through e-mail at - email@example.com. You never know your luck, I might even reply.

Reds or blues
This is an ongoing, 'work in progress' list, relating primarily to 'obscure' blues musicians. However, several of those listed may well fall into the R&B, country and/or jazz genres. It is likely that some of those currently listed will fail the current Wikipedia notability criteria. If that is clearly the case, then I will remove those names. Otherwise, and allowing for the usual verifiable sources being available, then the quest is to change a fair number of the 'red links' into 'blues' (pun intended).
As this list is now public property, I have absolutely no objection to anyone with an interest seeking to assist. It would be helpful, to avoid potential duplication of effort, if anyone contributing makes their interest known. Thank you.
