    Mance Lipscomb. More than a guitarist. Born 1895 and "discovered" and recorded in 1960. (I had to wiki the dates).

    I'm going to be discovered in the next year to 18 months. I'll be nearly 50... :)

    Roy Buchanan. He played with other bands, but was never discovered as a solo artist until later in his life after randomly getting a great live review at a small solo gig.

    I think that Wes Montgomery was in his mid 30s before he started recording and getting known.

    LOL. I was gonna say that.

    29, 31 is "later in life"? Keee-rist.
    Every once is awhile, I get a jolt on what the prevailing demographic around here is -- and I ain't invited.

    Wow, later in life to me is mid 30's to early 40's at the earliest, at least in the music biz, but I guess it depends on your perspective.
