It's a story as old as the blues itself: Life between gigs for 57-year-old Lonnie Brooks meant long stretches in a used van, riding down America's two-lane highways 250 days a year. The excitement of playing for the crowds at night would war with the loneliness during the day that came with being far from his family and home. Enter Ronnie Baker Brooks, the veteran guitarist's 24-year-old, guitar-playing son.

Wednesday night at the Galaxy in Santa Ana, he will make his first West Coast appearance in four years.
