It's rather amazing that one of the most beloved figures of the blues revival, whose guitar playing has influenced countless amateurs and pros, has never had a biography published about him.
I'm looking forward to this. Thanks for the heads up.
Have we mentioned the Son House biography before and I'm just forgetting (most likely scenario)? Who has written that one?

One of Jeff Harris's programs was devoted to an interview with Dan, and I think Jeff posted a link to it somewhere here. Jeff?
Dan tells me this is slated for June 1st. http://oup.com/us/catalog/general/subject/Music/PopularMusic/PopRockPopularCulture/?view=usa&ci=9780195395570
It's available as a pre-publication order. The scheduled release date is August 1, 2011. I didn't see it listed at the University Press of Mississippi website under "Upcoming Titles," but the info on the website probably doesn't reflect it's current status. There are some interesting titles in their American Made Music Series:http://www.upress.state.ms.us/search/series/4And here's a link to the author's site:http://www.dr-phil.co.uk/2-page.html
