I wasn't B.S.ing about Lisa Marie. I think she has got some serious
guts to get out there and do her thing in the shadow of her father.
That is a tremendous amount of pressure for anyone to deal with. If she
manages to make it, more power to her. I wasn't the original person
that called Marshall Chess, "the Lisa Marie of the Blues."
Additionally, I agree with you on the Chess family thing. I found it to
be somewhat self serving. He should be proud of his family's
accomplishments. They did a lot of work to produce some fabulous music,
but they did manage to record a great artist and their was little or no
recognition of that. That is sad! The music that they produced was a
partnership with the artist. I felt the artists were done a
dis-service. I felt like I could have been watching an infomercial for
Chess Records. There is nothing wrong with that. I find some
infomercials to be entertaining, especially at 2am.
