    He gets pissed off being pegged as a "blues" guy, mostly because it limits
    his options as a player.
    I guess he considers himself more of an "American Stringed Instrument
    Musician". Fluent in many idioms ( not the least of which is blues, Texas
    style) and instruments,and fiercely independent.

    Obtain "Okie Dokie Stomp", at least.
    He's no Buddy Guy, that's for sure. And that isn't a slam on Buddy, or on
    Gatemouth.
    He's getting on in years, as all those guys are. Catch 'em while you can.
