Not the case at all, & I'm not pigeon holing him, just saying that his style is distinctive. Equally, there's no doubt that he could have played for many a band of the day, but it still would have been him, & that's a good thing. Being recognised for a certain style, especially one that's of your own creation, is the mark of someone who's made a significant contribution to music, & who's legacy is assured.I'm pretty sure he could of simplified it down a bit
You are pigeon holing him because he stayed with the same band for 40 years.
