Buddy Moss arrested for murder in 1935?

(1/2) > >>

cjblues04:
Did anything say who Moss killed, and why he killed them?

To be honest, he sounded like a not really good person in my own opinion. Almost makes me not want to support his music, even though he's been dead for almost 40 years.

Johnm:
Buddy was sent to prison for killing his wife/lover. He always claimed he was innocent. I think he would be terribly upset that you almost don't want to support his music.

RobBob:
The descriptions of Moss's behavior display a troubled soul. It was/is not easy being black in America. That folks can be so giving and open is a testament to their personal strength. We are not all imbued with that strength equally usually as a result of life experiences. I take his music for what it is...and that is worthy of our respect.

Blues Vintage:
A lot more info right here, your question answered at 2.

I could swear there was another post to this thread that I found most entertaining.
