Survivor: The Benny Turner Story

(Nola Blue, Inc., 2017)

The autobiography of blues bassist Benny Turner, with me ghosting the text. Benny took a very hands-on approach to telling his amazing story; he begins by talking about growing up in Texas with his older brother, powerhouse blues guitarist Freddie King, before the action shifts to 1950s Chicago. Gospel, blues, soul, a brief singing career, long sideman stints behind Mighty Joe Young and Marva Wright, and Benny’s current star status are all covered here.
