“I like to think my songs send a message about how to get through this life.”
Doug MacLeod: The authorized compact biography is an inspirational story of friendship, forgiveness, family and the great and mystical healing power of the blues.
The book traces the highs and lows of MacLeod’s six decades in music and reveals how he overcame an abusive childhood to become a celebrated singer, songwriter and master of the blues guitar.
From St. Louis to the coffeehouses of hippie-era Norfolk. From the backwoods of Toano, Virginia to the rough-and-tumble blues clubs of 1970s Los Angeles. From his electric LPs of the 1980s right on up to the recording of 2018’s Acoustic Album of the Year Break The Chain. Along the way, he shares recollections of contemporaries like Albert King, B.B. King and his mentor George “Harmonica” Smith.
