    I'm an old bluesman.

    Or as close as I'll ever be, but still.

    And I'm sure as hell not alone here.

    I don't understand anything regarding this post, especially as it relates to the topic heading
    (I mean lots of old bluesmen were college professors, right?)
    That's ok though
    :)

    Maybe the poor guys in a blues psychosis

    Or maybe he has to be up real early and feels it’s even too early for a blues man?

    Sleepless in Iowa?

    I went to bed around 7.30 am this morning. Woke up to a knock at the door at 11am and a 30 plus degree Celsius day.

    I got the hot mornin blues.

    2:30 am means... you should just about have the trailer loaded up and with luck, you'll be home by 4:00

    Maybe that’s it!
    He’s been up since 2:30 this morning?

    The full bladder blues?

    By "2:30 AM", I mean a sudden realization of something you never thought of before. I thought it was a common writer expression, but apparently not.

    I'm not a bluesman. I wish I could play as well as some, but I'll never get there. But, my days revolve around blues. Plus, I'm old now (66). Played my first song with improvisation when I was 15, and went by the name Blind Lemon (as a gentle, reverent jokey thing a 15-year old would do).

    I thought other older guys here would think it was somewhat funny. But I made a big mistake with "2:30 AM."

    Not sure if I want to stick around for the fallout, though.

    That expression makes sense once I know what it means , I’ve just never heard it used before

    2.30 am is last cigarette and coffee before bed time and maybe sharpen your blues knife on a wet stone so it's ready for whatever tomorrow brings.

    I’m sure you have just as much right to be a blues man as Joe Banamassa and Mike Bloomfield

    No Camels for me, i'm health conscious so smoke filtered mid strength cigs. Those non filtered Camels will stain your teeth.

    Sometimes, instead of my usual 3:00, I get up at 2:30 a.m. Now that I'm retired, though, I often play my acoustic a couple hours and maybe watch some teevee, then go back to bed for a while.

    I think a bluesman doesn't necessarily mean a famous bluesman. A lot of us are bluesmen. My best songwriting happens at 2:30 am, which just so happens to be the best time for my book writing too. It is also the best time to enjoy a whiskey. Coincidence?

    The majority I bluesmen i've seen do have quite white teeth. Hard to maintain with all the hard living.

    I get the blues when I visit the dentist and he hands me the bill. Poking around in rotten mouths would be fun paying as well as it does. It would be like mining for custom shop and vintage guitars all day long.
