Before I left, I opened a lot of doors for a lot of people to play the blues.
I focused on how these people became how they were.
I look in music magazines now and see things on Luther Allison, and my name's getting out there more, thanks to all the good people at Alligator Records and at my management company.
I want people to recognize Luther Allison when I play.
I want to play in a place people want to hear me.
Well, I've had to deal with everything in my life... leavin' the family, learnin' what not and what to do.
But you know, I still had a dream of being able to go back home and tour.
But let's face it, I still have to look at my self and look at the things I've done down the stretch.
What I want to do, is play music for somebody who believe in me.
I have as much input to the blues; I just never got the chance, the opportunity or maybe the respect.
But I never had that commercial opportunity to be played on the radio, so how could I be popular?
I don't want to be in some big beautiful place that nobody want me, because I play the blues.
I've been waiting for that bright sunshine to show up and shine in my back door someday.
Me being a skinny guy, I could crawl into the steel pit.
