Perhaps the more persuasive of carollers of the exploits of wastrels, wanderers and woes of uncontrolled drunkards and illicit lovers. U.S. jazz periodical Metronome used these words in 1945 to describe singer Walter Brown who had left a secure job as chief band vocalist with the Jay McShann Orchestra to strike out on his own with a recording contract for KING Record's QUEEN subsidiary. With many of his blues having already borne such salty titles as 'Fore Day Rider', 'Hootie's Ignorant Oil' and 'Cryin' Won't Make Me Stay', while soon to include 'Sloppy Drunk', 'Gonna Play With Your Woman' and 'Let's Love Awhile', the description by a mainstream jazz publication would appear to have been fairly perceptive, particularly in view of the fact that within a dozen years, Walter would be dead, a victim of those same rough and rowdy ways.
