Q: Hey Bud, what do you feel when you sing the blues? And if you couldn't play or sing, how would your blues be heard? You rock Mr. Bud by the way. Be Blessed
A: Thanks for a great question! I tend to bottle up my feelings and then express them in my music. All of the pain, love, hurt, and happiness that I feel in my life tends to come out. I don't know what I would do without music to express myself and I hope I never have to find out.
