Dave Bartholomew - Who Drank The Beer While I Was In The Rear [Imperial 1952]
Dave Bartholomew was the man behind Fats Domino rise to success as well as being the author of Chuck Berry's only #1 - My Ding-A-Ling [but we'll forgive him for that!].
Trumpet player, entepreneur, songwriter, member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame...all these titles apply to the great Dave Bartholomew. Elvis Costello thought enough of DB to mention him in "Monkey to Man" on THE DELIVERY MAN which came out in 2004.
Check out this amazing slice of R&B from one of the first artists to write about social issues [The Monkey].
