An early version of the popular Kentucky-based band the Metropolitian Blues Allstars, which in October 1982 included, from left, Rodney Hatfield, Wanda Thompson, Nick Stump, Frank Schaap, Steve Lyon and Stewart Miller. Hatfield also dabbled in acting, appearing in the 1989 Patrick Swayze film Next of Kin, and later focused on visual art. Thompson died the following May while recovering from gallbladder surgery. Stump currently heads the Nick Stump Band. Schaap released a CD in 2009 titled Two Buskers’ Blues. Lyon, whose wife is current Kentucky poet laureate George Ella Lyon, remains active as a keyboardist as a member of Stump’s band. Miller teaches bass at University of Illinois-Chicago and performs at Chicago-area jazz clubs. Photo by Ron Garrison | Staff
