Sorry; I'm NOT Lyle Lovett - he's better looking!
Rick: The question really is WHY DID SHE MARRY HIM???
Leadbelly happens to be one of many folk persons I've collected information about for years. Got interested in him after seeing him in concert in Chicago many years ago. Don't remember the place, but probably Art T would know. Just be careful if you are reading about him. There have been a lot of things said that don't stand up to documentation. That's why I like the Wolfe - Warnell book; there is a ton of confirmation that can be documented.
Plus, I just like his music. And he had a way with the 12 string that I think is fantastic.
