Obligatory Waste of Time? Or Not? ( #BOTB Results )

 I said I'd do it here so here I am doing it.  I know you've been waiting so here it is!!!

Battle of the Bands Results

Folsom Prison Blues

         This is not my favorite song by a long shot, but I do like it and I'm a long time fan of Johnny Cash.  And again, he's not my favorite artist, but I recognize his place in music history and can appreciate his achievements in field of music.

            My recent contest had three artists performing the well-known Cash hit in three varying styles.  I liked all three versions--that's why I picked them--so I could go with any of them.  But in order to prevent a tie and to give something to every contestant then I'm giving my vote to the oddly named group The Cripple and The Tramp.  So that gives us a winner by a narrow margin.

Final Vote Tally

Slim Harpo                   5 votes

Everlast                         4 votes

Cripple and Tramp       1 vote

Have a nice day/weekend/life...


  1. Everlast was my choice. BUT no one, no one I tell you, can equal Johnny.

  2. Lee,

    Very close battle. My pick was Slim Harpo. Thanks for reporting the outcome, my friend. Have a good weekend!

  3. That's as close as a Battle can get without it becoming a disappointing tie.

    As I recall, you were due for a close one, Lee.

    See ya on the 1st.
