PimPage: An Occasional Feature in Which I Call Interesting Books to Your Attention

Amazon.com: Hank & Muddy (9781935797135): Stephen Mertz: Books: "In steamy Shreveport, Louisiana, two musical legends-in-the-making come together: a whiskey-soaked country singer named Hank Williams and blues artist Muddy Waters. What they've got in common over several hectic days of drinking, singing and whoring is an interest in staying alive despite local mobsters, bent cops, and a truckload of Ku Klux Klansmen. Swimming with alligators is the least of this pair's adventures."

Yeah, I'd say that have to great musicians of their genres crossing paths is a unique story idea. Especially since blues music is close to my soul. Ol' Hank was just one step away from the blues, too.
