Yep! I went and found all kinds of awesome videos of good stuff when I was taking "History of Rock" in college. It was taught by Parke Puterbaugh, who was an editor at Rolling Stone and has done work for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since its inception.

There are some great vids of some of the old classic blues & R&B guys on youtube. I will have to dig some back up again. :bananastoner:
