These pages are dedicated to the life and music of the famous swamp-rock singer and song writer.
The presented material was collected from various sources; most of it from editorials on record covers.
I have included every piece of information that I am aware of. Therefore, if you miss something it's most likely because I didn't know about it.
Please send me your comments
about these pages and any additional information you might have.
Unfortunately, Tony Joe passed away on October 24, 2018 in his house in Nashville
as a result of a heart attach. He will forever live in our memories.
August '96 - October '18, Martin Doppelbauer, Karlsruhe, Germany
P.S.: I receive a lot of mail messages asking where to buy a special
album. I'm really sorry folks, but I can't help you. TJW's albums are real
collector's items (except the CDs, of course) and not available in regular
shops any more. You should try second hand lp-stores. In fact that's where
I got most of my albums from. But it all depends on good luck.
"I'm almost like a lone wolf out there. I just play my guitar and
don't worry about it. They don't know if I'm black, white, country or rock."
