Yeah MPW, and you definitely have no ulterior motive for disliking this band. Don't worry, that dude's not in the group anymore anyway....
I worked for Billy for a while at French Quarter Bikes. Several of his old employees are trying to come in from out of town for the memorial service and there's even talk of getting matching FQB tattoos despite the fact that he fired almost all of us! We miss him.
Allison-Thanks for the info. Do you know where I can hear that documentary?
Soul Jazz also just re-released, thankfully, their three-record comiliation "New Orleans Fun", which features the K- Doe song, plus tons of lesser known stuff by Eddie Bo, Lee Dorsey, Mary Jane Hooper, Betty Harris, Chuck Carbo, etc. It's available on vinyl and I think cd, but am not sure. On vinyl you can get it over at Domino SOund and Louisiana Music factory. Hopefully they'll also re-release the sister album, "Saturday Night Fish Fry" as well.
