Articles and thoughts from the mind of Deke
They were loved by Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and Elvis Presley; it would be hard to come up with a musical group more influential than the Maddox Brothers and Rose in the bawdy birthing of rock and roll music in the 1950s.
The great Al Schmitt has passed away at the age of 91. He was quite possibly the most famous and respected recording engineer of all time. I made up an excuse to interview Al a few years ago for a recording magazine.
Rock and roll was mostly the property of the southern states in the 1950s. It makes sense, however, that the city of Detroit spawned a real, honest-to-goodness rock and roll legend, Mr. Jack Scott.
