Summary
The white man was not a tax agent or the law. He was a young fellow named Alan Lomax, and his recordings of Muddy -- the first ever made -- would launch the career of McKinley A. Morganfield, aka Muddy Waters, rocketing him from farmhand to musical legend. As Robert Gordon brilliantly details in Can't Be Satisfied, Muddy Waters invented electric blues and created the template for the rock-and-roll band and its wild lifestyle. Gordon excavates Muddy's mysterious past and early career, taking us from Mississippi fields to postwar Chicago street corners. We meet the men and women who surrounded Muddy, riding shotgun with him as his style evolves. On the journey, we get a primer on blues, including an introduction to the other essential musicians who shaped this bedrock of modern culture. Gordon evokes the creative process and takes us in the studio and on the road with Muddy's band as they drive across the South, guns in their laps, whiskey and champagne on their breath, no streetlight in sight. From a tangle of midnight, smoke, sweat, and deep genius, Robert Gordon re-creates the skin and soul of this American giant. The blues is feeling good about feeling bad. Gordon doesn't shy from the contradictions; he embraces them, garnering the same energy in storytelling that fueled Muddy's music making. There's never been a comprehensive biography of Muddy until now. And with Can't Be Satisfied, there will never be need for another
Summary
Drawn from in-depth research and detailed interviews, an authoritative biography of the father of modern blues details his turbulent life, from the cotton fields of rural Mississippi to his extraordinary rise to success, forever changing the music industry
