Songs classic rock radio should be playing, No. 4

4. Robert Johnson, Cross Road Blues. This could have been B.B. King’s Three O’Clock Blues. Or Buddy Guy’s Baby Please Don’t Leave Me. And so on. If classic rock radio really is the history of rock and roll, then blues should be a bigger part of the mix, and definitely more than just the occasional Stevie Ray Vaughn track. Musicians from bands like the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin embrace their blues influence. Why can’t classic rock radio?
