Can't Be Satisfied is that rare thing in musical biographies: a book that maps out not just a single, extraordinary life but the cultural forces that shaped it' Sean O'Hagan, Observer
Muddy Waters was the greatest blues musician ever, and the most influential. He invented electric blues, inspired the Rolling Stones and created the template for the rock 'n' roll band and its wild lifestyle.
Robert Gordon's definitive biography vividly chronicles the extraordinary life and personality of the musical legend who changed the course of modern popular music.
Robert Gordon is the author of several books and documentary films. In addition to Can't Be Satisfied: The Life and Times of Muddy Waters his books include It Came From Memphis, as well as two books about Elvis produced in co-operation with Elvis' estate. He produced and directed the Grammy-nominated documentary Muddy Waters Can't Be Satisfied, was Writer and Associate Producer on The Road to Memphis, an episode of the Martin Scorsese blues series, and produced the Al Green box set Anthology, for which his liner notes were Grammy-nominated..
Robert Gordon has produced an immensely readable biography, as rowdy and dangerous as its subject. . . There'll be no need for another Muddy Waters biography, this will do handsomely.
