Wynonie Harris

WYNONIE HARRIS of Good Rockin Tonight, lived the life he sang. Hard drinkin, hard lovin, hard shoutin. “I knew I had to be different If I was going to make any bread,” Harris said in an article for Tan Magazine. “The woods are full of blues singers, some good, some great, some stink. I wanted to be the greatest...I knew if the women were with me, I was home free. I started snarlin at em, upsetting them, sneering at em. I was operating on the theory what most women want deep down in their hearts is an outright hellion, a rascal.”
