    I tell folks at gigs that Billy goes to bed wearing this stuff. Maybe?

    Before I met him ( 15 years ago now) he said he used to do 'Vegas Elvis' Shows- wearing the jumpsuit singing to backing tracks

    when picking nits.... focusing on the region known as 'less clown' is about as fruitful as searching for philosophical depth from Bryce Harper.

    Musicians and music fans too often have the familial empathy of young spiders eating their mom... why, when live music is at its nadir and the industry is struggling do we feel the need to torch our brothers and sisters is truly bizarre... but, it has a long history.

    Authenticity has to do with the heart and not the hat. Ask Dolly Parton.

    I remember a few years ago I joked about Blooze and posted links to Blues Hammer, a fictional ‘authentic blues’ bar band that Seymour has to roll eyes at with his date in the movie Ghost World.

    I regret having anything to do with Blooze posts, it’s just getting redica-ma-lous. As if anyone can card-check another guy about about authenticity on the interwebs. I’m tellin’ ya, these are kind of posts more and more resemble something out of Rig of Dad (look it up, Instagram).

    Yeah, trying too hard not to look like a sweaty try hard is the new thing in many walks of life, not just live music. Dress “normal“, act “normal” so you don’t come across as too much of a showman, etc. The pendulum swings. Won’t be long until it’s all outlandish costumes and over the top stagecraft (again). :)

    That blues player you were hanging out with the other day was a middle class kid who went to art school in London, and is one of the richest men in the music biz.

    "Live and Let Live." it's easy to say, but exceedingly hard to practice. Was it Jean Paul Sartre who said "hell is other people?"

    I’ll bet he played a couple of Blooze tunes wearing it!

    It's a pretty offensive comment to say the least.There are guys running around playing bars dressed like Stevie Ray as kind of a tribute.So,why not let them be?

    I am all for the return of the wizard suit. i'm trying to design one that looks good on a short fat guy.

    authenticity? neither blues nor country are my roots, exactly, though I heard country music all the time when I was a kid. but MY music was the spacey prog music of the early seventies and also black sabbath. that's my "blues". and I want a wizard suit, so I will look like Rick Wakeman.

    On a Saturday night do most people say “Let’s go out and hear a band” or “Let’s go out and SEE a band”

    Visual live entertainment normally involves some form of costume for the performers.

    I think it’s high time “bro” got added in front of some other genre names. Where is the bro klezmer? The bro
    metal? The bro high life?

    I don’t understand all the terminology that differentiates different subcategories of EDM, but just trying a few out: bro electro, bro dubstep...

    I want to start a bro klezmer phenomenon. Or maybe that’s just my new band name...

    "Bro" anything is unlikely to be thrilling. I don't get the point of arguing over stupid generalizations. "Country" is a meaningless catch-all term and always has been. It's not an old historic form. Some of the earliest "country legends" were as synthetic and showbiz as a leisure suit. Ridiculing what is supposedly "bad" country or trying to validate what is supposedly legit is really silly. Ditto for the blues. There is no such single thing as the blues. It's a huge category with no clear boundaries and arguing over what's legit and not is, again, dumb. We can also fight about what is and is not art. Or love. Etc. We can talk about what we, ourselves prefer, but anyone who thinks they're the judge of country or blues... isn't. No one is. There are no criteria, and no standards.

    Methinks the OP’s obsession with a particular unhumorous joke has grown beyond wearisome.
