    and all the ridiculous music that went on at various locations of Antone's from 1980-1992. There is no way I can even begin to list it all or even what part of it influenced me more than another part of it. It is so much a part of the fabric of my life that it is hard to even identify some if it. Some of it seems like it couldn't have really happened.

    I probably forgot more top 12 than I remembered but thems the breaks.
    Others reminded me of a bunch!

    A few I forgot:
    David Gilmour
    Neil Young
    Stevie Wonder
    The Beatles (yeah, forgot ‘em)
    The Eagles
    Johnny Cash

    Maybe I don’t understand the question?
    Vocalists
    Guitarists
    Overall bands
    Composers or writers
    Creative innovators

    I need 12 names for each category!
    But I guess I mostly just a guitar player so should stick to guitar players.
    Problem is my guitar influence is maybe 40% guitarists, 20% singers, 20% sax players and 20% piano players.

    Clifford was indeed a kind and generous ambassador of the post war blues.
    He brought countless great blues artists to his clubs.
    I saw quite a few, too.
    Younger Texas based blues artists were featured, too.
    Clifford had a great collection of instruments and amps that were available for those artists to use.
    He was indeed a mensch, low-key and likable.
    May he RIP.

    Dammit I forgot Rev Billy and Duane!
    Hugely important even as I stopped listening to most of that old time guitar band music. Fandango was in heavy rotation at the start and I was playing some BG stuff this summer, trying to get his feel thing that sounds effortlessly simple but isn’t.

    Hell I forgot Little Feat for that funky feel that’s as essential to me as any other aspect of music.

    Singers I maybe had a shot and and tried to emulate include Elvis Costello, Dylan, Frank Proffitt, and Ewan MacColl.
    I’d like to be able to sing like Gregg Allman but haha to that.
    I’d be pretty happy to sing like Chris Cornell too and he should be in my dozen...
