Like a true bluesman, Omar Dykes has taken his lumps.

Dykes spends a good chunk of time overseas. One advantage is Europe's compact geography. "You play five clubs in Holland, and you've pretty much covered the whole country," he says. "Playing five clubs in the United States is like urinating in the ocean." Another is that, in general, European fans are more accepting of Omar's Howler-brew of swamp blues, rock and rockabilly than Americans are. "I don't think they have such strict guidelines there," he says. "Blues-rock is still very popular there. Over here, it's out of mode."
