But it rarely is these days. Granted, I think the House of Blues is latching on to a popular trend (because Buddhism is considered hip and "new-age", which is ironic). But I'm saying that in general I can see a connection between the two. Now keep in mind also, I'm not talking about people born as Buddhists being into the blues in any way. I'm talking about how people who feel the strong emotions that are catalysts for the blues could benefit from adopting some of the ideas found in Eastern religion, but still accepting the fact that they're probably too deeply "of the world" to be a true Buddhist. I know most blues singers were Christian (although it's said that Robert Johnson made a deal with the devil) but Christian imagery would probably turn off tourists, and part of my point is that the House of Blues has traded integrity for "keeping with the times".

They could benefit from it as people, but not as musicians. And HOB (according to Wikipedia it's a chain of restaurants and hotels?) is supposed to be dedicated to mostly dead musicians so it strikes me as somewhat disrespectful to decorate it buddhist style. Like pissing on their graves.

Yeah. That's what I mean. As people. And yes. It is dumb that they decorate it with Buddhist imagery. As I said. It fails to be what it's trying for.

Good Question. And hello MusicBanter. Long time, no see. I think that since I'm still doing the same type of stuff I was doing here in my new blog, I'll link to that...
