Abstract:

"Bayou Underground explores the music of the region through the legends and rumors that created it in the first place. From the House of the Rising Sun to the legend of Stagger Lee, from Marie Laveau to the axman who loved hot jazz, Bayou Underground unearths the people and the cultures that have called the bayou home, revisiting their words and lives through the music of so many rock outsiders. Bo Diddley, Nick Cave and Alice Cooper pass through the pages to document past history, or create a new one. It is the world of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Jerry Reed and Elvis Presley; it is the music of Dr. John, Joe Satriani and the Oak Grove Swamp Fox"--Page 4 of cover.
