  1. Ronnie Rocket, my friend. I thank you for caring and supporting my father, the legendary Louis Blues Boy Jones! This has been an amazing journey for all of us traveling down memory lane of a blues legend’s life from Galveston Texas. In October 2007, after discovering information about him over the Internet. I had a vision and I believed that one day, I was going to write a book about my Dad’s life and hope someone will make a movie. March 13, 2015, The Re-Introduction of a Blues Legend was released. Sill dreaming BIG about a movie or documentary on Blues Boy Jones!. Thanking all of his wonderful supporters around the globe!
