Blue-grass, that is. And how's your sense of humor? A lot of people underestimate the influence of various musical genres on bluegrass. Bill Monroe was working on a rap session, for example, to be called "Killa' Bill." He only finished two cuts for this album, a reamke entitled "Pretty Polly was a Ho" and a fusion classic called "Bake Them Hotcakes, B***ch." He was to team up with Eminem and Marilyn Manson to record "Eminem, MM and M." Apparently Bill preferred not to be called 'BM'. Others too have utilized influences from modern contemporary music. Who could forget at the CMT Video Awards, when Allison Krauss planted an open-mouthed kiss on Mother Maybelle Carter? Mrs. Carter, who had been dead for years, had no comment. So, as you can see, bluegrass is a diverse entity. I too have blues credentials, but prefer to give folks good-natured shit.
