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.

Gebundene Ausgabe - Parragon Plus- 78 Seiten - Englisch Quiet Beginnings Charles Hardin Holley was born on 7 September, 1936, in Lubbock, Texas. (The more familiar ´Holly´ spelling is the result of a mistake on Buddy´s first recording contract.) He was the youngest of Lawrence and Ella Hol-ley´s four children, and was raised like the rest of the family as a Fundamen-talist Baptist, in the strict moral atmo-sphere of the Bible belt of south-west America. His father had moved to in search of work in the thriving cotton industry of the area, and although Texas was not especially known for its musical heritage, his family made music a part of their lives. From the singing which was an important part of their church life, to the music which they played and sang at home, Buddy, as he was called from an early age, was sur-rounded by its influence. He won a five-dollar prize at the age of 5, with a rendition of Down The River Of Mem-ories, accompanying himself on a toy violin.
