Biographie

Arthur « Big Boy » Crudup est musicien, joueur de blues. Il est né le 24 août 1905 à Forest dans le Mississippi, a commencé la guitare à 32 ans et s’est fait connaitre à Chicago. Il est mort le 28 mars 1974 à l’hôpital de Nassawadox (Virginie, USA), âgé de 68 ans.

Il est surtout connu pour être l’auteur du premier tube d’Elvis Presley : That’s All Right Mama. Elvis lui reprendra ensuite My Baby Left Me et So Glad You’re Mine. De nombreux autres jeunes artistes, blancs pour la plupart, reprendrons ses titres.

Mais mauvais gestionnaire de ses droits d’auteur, comme beaucoup de ses compatriotes, et en particulier les bluesmen, il est mort sans un sou, en 1974.

    I am sure there's better versions of "That's All Right Mama" around. Back in the early 1970s, Crudup stayed overnight with us up in Manchester. Nice guy, reminiscing about what it was like to be touring the US South in the 1930s. Had stories of having to run for his life when one of the other blues players he was touring with got out of line. For me, it was nice to be with the guy whose music ("Mama") provided Sam Philips with the "White guy playing black music" when Elvis started goofing around in the Sun Studios with Crudup's hit. You can still feel the hair rise on the back of your neck when you hear the power that Elvis brought to the tune. Crudup wasa decent blues player. Not one of the true greats. But he was in at the birth of White Rock Music - and it was his music that inspired the young Elvis.

    It's pure insanity that those great songs are still copyright protected!
