Just ask Tallan T-Man Latz, the worlds youngest performing blues guitarist, whose musical inspirations include Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton.
Even though hes only nine years old, Latz loves blues music because its unique and it comes from the heart, and he can truly relate to it.
He explains, Its not just grown-ups who have the blues, kids do too. I have the blues when its raining outside and I cant go play or ride my bike.
Other things that give Latz the blues include getting up early for school, homework, and cleaning his room.
He adds, It feels pretty terrible for kids when they have to do chores every day!
However, playing music cures his blues, and Latz has the most fun when hes up on stage jammin.
He kicks off his own Internet radio show this upcoming Saturday (Mar. 14) on tallanlatz.com, where hell talk blues with other musicians.
