Having been a part of that workforce for forty years or so it seemed appropriate to me. I consider the Wonderful izard of Oz our patron saint. I was that man behind the curtain. Unsung musicians that deserve more notice? John Hiatt and Ry Cooder warrant much more attention. Siegel-Schwall Blues Band is a personal favorite. After doing their own gigs, they'd go to Chicago after hours joints and back up the Blues greats of the Windy City.
