Taschenbuch - 294 Seiten - Louisiana State Univ Pr - 2014 - Englisch ´´I credit Huey with opening the door for funk, basically as we know it, in some ridiculously hip way, and putting it in the mainstream of the world´s music´´: –DR. JOHN, 2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee ´´Huey ´Piano´ Smith stands tall as one of the major creators of New Orleans rhythm & blues. Drawing on meticulous research, John Wirt tells Smith´s story here in terms of both joyous artistic achievements and grim, demoralizing exploitation. Huey ´Piano´ Smith and the Rocking Pneumonia Blues illuminates the vital role of a great talent in an important chapter in Louisiana music history´: –BEN SANDMEL, author of Ernie K-Doe: The R&B Emperor of New Orleans Huey ´´Piano´´ Smith´s musical legacy stands alongside that of fellow New Orleans legends Dr. John, Fats Domino, Ernie K-Doe, and Allen Toussaint. His 1957 classic, ´´Rocking Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu,´´ made Billboard´s top R&B singles chart, and hundreds of artists including Aerosmith, the Grateful Dead, the Beach Boys, Johnny Riv-ers, and Chubby Checker have recorded his songs. The first biography of the artist responsible for hits ´´Don´t You Just Know It:´ ´´High Blood Pressure:´ and ´´Sea Cruise:´ Huey ´´Piano´´ Smith and the Rocking Pneumonia Blues fol-lows the musician´s extraordinary life from his Depression-era childhood to his teen years as a pianist for blues star Guitar Slim to his mainstream success in the 195os and ´6os. Drawing from extensive interviews and court records, author and journalist John Wirt also provides new insights on Smith´s professional disappointments and financial struggles in the 198os and ´9os as he battled over royalties from his most successful and profitable work. Throughout this intimate account, Wirt details Smith´s significant impact on rock and roll history and underscores both the longevity of his music—which has entertained and inspired for over five decades—and the musician´s personal endurance in the face of hard-ship and opposition. JOHN WIRT has covered music, film, and entertainment for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, the Daytona Beach News-Journal, and The Advocate´s Baton Rouge and New Orleans editions.
