more to slide than blues?

An curios statement considering that slide was invented by Hawaiians.There 
was a huge hawaiin music fad in the 20s(.Ever seen the pictures of the 
college guy w/ a racoon skin coat ,a strw hat and a ukulele? that was as 
as a white guy could get ,for thatgeneration) Anyway Hawaiian music had a 
huge influence. and not just on Country  ,B.B.King has said part of his 
vocal lead style was influenced by Hawaiian steel guitar.
