Rocker Sheryl Crow's father is making a name for himself as the guitarist in revered jazz and blues group the USUAL SUSPECTS.

The ALL I WANNA DO star has payed tribute to her aged dad as a real inspiration for her, because he's still a vibrant musician at 71.

She says, "He looks a little like SEAN CONNERY - very dapper. He's cool in the jazz sense of the word.

"He's an attorney, and he still practices law at age 71 and plays guitar in his band. They play at places like BB KING'S in Memphis, and they kick a**."
