About the Author
James L. Dickerson is an award-winning newspaper journalist and author, originally from Greenville, Mississippi. He formed his first band in high school in 1962 and performed throughout his college years as a keyboardist/sax man for the Dynamics, the Strokers, and the Roadrunners. A longtime resident of Memphis and Nashville, he was an editorial writer for The Commercial Appeal and a book critic for the Nashville Tennessean. His Memphis-published magazine Nine-O-One Network, at one time the third-largest circulation music magazine in the U.S., made history by becoming the first Southern-based magazine to obtain newsstand distribution in all 50 states and overseas. His biography of Scotty Moore, That’s Alright, Elvis (Simon & Schuster), co-authored with the guitar legend, was a finalist for the Gleason Award. His music history, Mojo Triangle: Birthplace of Country, Blues, Jazz and Rock ‘n’ Roll (Schirmer Trade), was a first-place winner of the IPPY Award for best non-fiction book in the South.

It's not that the writer can't write, it's just that the lively pictures he paints are inaccurate, and, in some cases, fictitious.
