CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

My in Laws Made An Outlaw Out Of Me - LOU MILLET

Louis Millet (April 1926, Baton Rouge, La) was an American rockabilly and honky tonk guitarist and singer. Lou Millet was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. His musical career started a bit later than some people might do in the business, not learning to play the guitar until he was 16 years old. But, after he learned the guitar, he soon formed his own band called “The Melody Ramblers”. That band stayed together for about four years and appeared on several radio stations in the area including WLCS and WJBO as well as WLBR in Lebanon, Pennsylvania. Lefty Frizzell gave him his first big break and in 1953, he was still associated with Lefty, by fronting the band during one of Lefty’s tours. Other folks who helped Lou out included Troy Martin of the Southern Music Company and J. D. Miller of Crowley, Louisiana and Don Lan of Columbia Records.
