    Default Will the real Blues icon please stand up?

    A recently released photo. One of these three people is revered by most of us, known by all of us, as one of the early Blues icons.

    The tall fella under the umbrella sorta looks like a young Sonny Boy to me.

    I think we have a winner.
    Looks like Son House.
    I'm used to seeing him as an old guy.
    Most of the ones who stayed alive and made it to the "Blues Revival" will always be old in my mind.

    Charlie called it. The man under the umbrella is Son House. Taken about 1929. In the collection of John Tefteller, I believe.
