Can't Be Satisfied. The Life and Times of Muddy Waters - Robert Gordon. Foreword by Keith Richards.
Penned by the author of "It Came From Memphis" the story of Muddy Waters takes us from his discovery by Alan Lomax, rocketing him from farmhand to musical legend. Waters was a major contributor to the founding of electric blues, creating the template for the rock 'n' roll. Gordon excavates Muddy's early mysterious past from Mississippi to post war Chicago street corners, in the studio and on the road with his band as they drive across the south, guns in their laps and whiskey on their breath (hardcover, new).
