All due respect to these two (Brad Whitford and Derek St. Holmes), who have been very successful blues/rock players for a long time. So, yes, respect.
And it’s true that I’m groping for a performing image, and I’m not in principle opposed to a gimmick. Should I wear a hat? A sparkly bandana? Tibetan boots? A crow’s feather in my hair?
Is this the image I should cultivate?
