It's a gross generalization to describe Tezas blues as "more laid back than other styles". For one thing, it's not a single style. What single style could possibly encompass Henry Thomas, Blind Lemon Jefferson, T-Bone Walker, Lightning Hoplins, Frankie Lee Sims, Bobby Bland, Albert Collins, and King Curtis? Some of the blues from Texas was laid back, some wasn't.
I removed Kenny Wayne Shepard (actually Shepherd) from the list because I haven't seen anything that associated him with 'Texas' blues, other than being a blues musician with some Texas associations. Could some references be cited before readding? SteveHopson 21:07, 30 September 2006 (UTC)
While I Agree there is a genre of Texas Blues, I don't define it as Ledbelly. I think Stevie Ray Vaughn is the main example. Although I reflected the main article's views in the genre box I made. --SilverPwnzor 01:10, 22 October 2007 (UTC)
