Tragically, the great Waylon Jennings passed away earlier this year. He had quite an amazing career.

"To my
main man

Best known as the personification of the "outlaw country peformer", Jennings is best remembered for his wonderful songs and his work with the Highwaymen (Jennings, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and Kris Kristofferson).

Jennings also is famous for narrowly escaping death on the most tragic night in rock and roll history. He was the temporary bass player for Buddy Holly's Crickets on that fateful night in 1959 when Buddy's plane crashed in Clear Lake, Iowa - killing Buddy, Ritchie Valens, J.P. Richardson (The Big Bopper), and the pilot.

Legend has it that Jennings "lost" a coin toss with Buddy Holly deciding who would ride in the plane and who was stuck on a cold bus with a broken heater. The true version of the story is that Waylon gallantly gave up his seat on the plane to The Big Bopper - who was suffering from a cold.

The Sound of Building Coffins
by Louis Maistros

Signed copies available exclusively on the net here at Louie’s Juke Joint, just click this link to order!


"Louis Maistros has written a lyrical, complex, and brave novel that takes enormous risks and pulls them all off. He is a writer to watch and keep reading, a writer to cherish."
Peter Straub

"The Society of North American Magic Realists welcomes its newest, most dazzling member, Louis Maistros. His debut novel is a thing of wonder, unlike anything in our literature. It startles. It stuns. It stupefies. No novel since CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES has done such justice to New Orleans. If Franz Kafka had been able to write like Peter Straub, this might have been the result."
Donald Harington,
Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award and the Oxford-American Lifetime Achievement Award.

“The Sound of Building Coffins is easily one of the finest and truest pieces of New Orleans fiction I've ever read.”
- Poppy Z. Brite

“One has to write with considerable authenticity to pull off a story steeped in magic and swamp water that examines race and class, death and rebirth, Haitian voodoo, and the beginnings of jazz in 1891 New Orleans...The plot is complex and magical, grounded in the history of the city, without being overly sentimental. There is a comfort with death as a part of life in this work that reveals deep feeling for the city and its past....Highly recommended for all fiction collections, especially where there is an interest in jazz."
- Library Journal
