My new favorite blues singer. Bland was never a guitarist who sang or a harpist who sang...he just sang. And still does! Check out his killer performance of "The Thrill is Gone" w/BB King in the 70s.

I've been listening to this guy forever. He's got the best name too. I honestly started listening to him after hearing his name in a Busta Rhymes lyric back in '95.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
