The reality is that some of the best blues being played in the last 20 years has been by those kinda guys: Gene Taylor, Lynwood Slim, Charlie Musselwhite, James Harman, Junior Watson, Richard Innes, Bill Stuve, Charlie Baty, Doug Deming, Dave Specter, etc.I was going to, but you beat me to it. Nothing says "blues" like a middle-aged suburban white guy with a beer belly in Hawaiian shirt, shades and fedora, and a minivan in the parking lot!!
That look musta wore off Sam Lay pretty quick. The times I've seen him he was dressed in what might be called "casual Djinn".
