Bolingbrook's Al Spears storms onto local blues scene
BOLINGBROOK – It didn't come until he was in his 30s, but once Al Spears picked up a guitar, it just stuck.
"My boys called me nuts," Spears said, a smile brimming from ear-to-ear as he recalled the day in 1992 when he told his family of his new hobby. "But, I stuck with it and now they understand that the blues is much more than the weekly gigs and jam sessions."
Now 57, Spears and his Gibson guitar are regulars at Coop's Den in Bolingbrook and the V-Lounge in Addison, two popular blues spots in the west suburbs.
