This answer is formatted poorly, and has an overabundance of CAPITALS, but it seems like a legitimate answer, even if it's not the most helpful one. I would suggest it should be edited and improved rather than deleted:

It was flagged as not an answer which it really did not try to address the core of the question which is about the 12 bar blues style. The combination of not really an answer plus the poor formatting made it an easy flag to handle as a delete.

I personally don't think the content is salvageable as is even if it was formatted better as again it didn't address the question asked. It talked a bit about blues history, but nothing really addressed the question.
