Through my music career how we dressed went through several stages. When I started performing we all had to wear the same tuxedo jackets, black pants and pointy shoes. We also had to learn steps (doing the "Stroll" was mandatory). Then there was the "Sly" period where the white guys had to dress like the Family Stone. We all wound up looking like "Elton John". Then Woodstock happened and the game changed to anything you wanted as long as denim was involved. The requirement for Jazz players appears to be knit skull caps but the majority of musicians it seems have adopted the black shirts, pants and a tiny short brimmed black hat. Country players for the most part have lost the cowboy hat and boots unless your George Streight or Charley Danials and opted for diffrent variations of baseball caps. What's your take on what's in and what's out?
