Professor Longhair: The Professor of Rock
Rob Partridge, Melody Maker, 8 September 1973
THE PROFESSOR, THEY SAY, influenced just about every musician in New Orleans. And it’s not a claim he’s about to deny. "I taught most of the youngsters," he comments. "I had so many kids comin’ to me wanting to play drums, horns... they wanted to play music, y’know. I’d go along with them an’ give them work."
