Tony Snow, master of the blues flute
I'm not sure who came up with the idea of playing the flute in a blues band. Maybe it was Ian Anderson, or perhaps James Galway tried it once. It's not important. New press secretary Tony Snow knows how to play the flute, as shown in this clip that Wonkette found earlier today. Why he's playing a solo for "Stormy Monday," or why he finishes the song on the saxophone, well, those are questions left for you to ponder. I think this version of the song is an insult not only to the blues, but to flutists everywhere as well.
