Guitar wiz's problems will make him better blues artist

ELKHORN, Wis. (AP) - An 8-year-old Wisconsin guitar wiz says the problems he's had trying to play legally will make him a better blues artist.

Tallan "T-Man" Latz has been playing since he was 5 years old. He's played with Les Paul and performed in bars and nightclubs, including Chicago's House of Blues.

That's before an anonymous tipster complained to state officials that child labor laws bar Tallan from playing in taverns and clubs. And before his booking agent got an anonymous death threat.

Earlier, the boy's father says he heard a local guitarist say Tallan shouldn't be in a bar and that he was going to turn him in. The man denies badmouthing the youngster.

Tallan can still play at festivals. But the boy's father is asking a legislator for help changing the law.
