Boy, I feel like I have just played both roles in "Dumb and Dumber."

For years, "I" was the one who told people that Earl Hooker had separate careers playing blues in Chicago and country our in the sticks.

He had a whole circuit of clubs in Moline, Davenport, Rock Island and other places in Iowa and western Illinois.

It helped him stay out of Chicago so he was not overexposed and he did the country places just enough to hold that audience.

I cannot believe that I knew that so well and just blanked on bringing it forth . . .
