Televisioni don't watch T.V. -however in the rare event that i remember to watch it, I love anything relating to true crime, and family guy always cracks my shit up, and that RENO 911 show is pretty friggen hilarious.
Lizzie Douglas aka "Memphis Minnie" -not only did she run away from home to play banjo and guitar with the Ringling Brothers circus at the age of 13, she was one of the first artists to go electric, plugging in as early as 1942. In addition to that, she kicked Big Bill Broonzy's ass at guitar, was known for throwing the best parties in Chicago, and was married 3 different times! (might i add, during an era in which that was unheard of). " Any men fool with her she'd go right after them right away. She didn't take no foolishness off them. Guitar, pocket-knife, pistol, anything she get her hand on she'd use it; y'know Memphis Minnie used to be a hell-cat...."
"Minnie began recording in 1929 with her partner, Joe McCoy, on second guitar. Minnie played the guitar parts and usually sang lead, with Joe as back-up. They recorded dozens of records over the next 5 years. Joe and Minnie married, but eventually split probably due to the fact that Minnie's superior guitar skill was complimented over Joe's by all that heard them play, leading to tension in the relationship. Minnie's last partner was Little Son Joe. They recorded her biggest hits in 1940-41 "Me & My Chauffeur" and "Black Rat Swing", on both of these Minnie plays her newly-acquired electric guitar."

Click for Earl Palmer Audio Interview
Courtesy American Routes, Real Audio
"The back beat of the Crescent City during the feverish fifties, Earl Palmer held down the groove at Cosimo's studio from l95O-'57 - a period that yielded Little Richard's "Tutti-Frutti," Lloyd Price's "Lawdy Miss Clawdy," Fats Domino's "The Fat Man," and Smiley Lewis' "I Hear You Knockin,'" among countless other lease-breakin' party platters. Palmer moved to Los Angeles in the late '5Os, where he fulfilled his dream of becoming a first-rate jazz man--and then some! From Don & Dewey's "Ko Ko Joe" to Eddie Cochran's "Somethin' Else," Sheb Wooley's "Purple People Eater" and Ritchie Valens' "La Bamba," and sessions spanning the entire history of rock and roll--including the hillbilly jazz of steel guitar master Speedy West and his Telecaster-yielding partner in crime Jimmy Bryant, the surf scene of the Beach Boys and Jan & Dean, the hard-hitting R&B of Charles Brown, Ray Charles, Earl Bostic and Lloyd Price, the blues of T-Bone Walker, B.B. King, Roosevelt Sykes and Taj Mahal, to jazz sessions with Dizzy Gillespie, Monkees albums, Tim Buckley and Tim Hardin, Duane Eddie and the Everly Brothers, through Tom Waits and Elvis Costello, Earl Palmer has played on all of 'em."
