Donald Nix: Of Shoes & Sticks & Donald Nix

John Tobler, ZigZag, October 1973

NOW THIS here's the story 'bout the Rock Island Line... no, that's not true at all, because it's actually a story about a legendary figure, a rock 'n' roll hero, a man whose name you'll probably know, but won't perhaps be able to place very well. It's Don Nix, and after reading this, perhaps you'll have an idea of his importance, which, in its way, I think is as great as that of say, Al Kooper or James Burton.
