If you are a 70-year-old blues man named Guitar Shorty, chances are you can play a pretty mean blues guitar. Better yet, if in the early days of your career, you spent a year in Ray Charles’ band, recorded under the direction of Willie Dixon and played in both Guitar Slim and Sam Cooke’s band, chances are you know a little something about showmanship. Furthermore, if in a low point of your career, you won the “Gong Show,” by playing your theme song while balanced on your head, chance nothing, you are a god. Bow down, blues geeks.
