Warren Storm !

The first tales from the archives contest is a huge success !
See, we had a lotta thank you, one I love you and one wedding plan (JeanPop2 with Kenny).
More soon…

Warren Storm (Warren Schexnider) ,the Godfather of swamp pop, grew up in a Cajun household (he spoke only French until the third grade – me too btw ^_^).
By age 15, Warren was playing drums with Larry Brasso's Rhythm-aires; then, after a stint with Herb Landry's R&B based Serenaders, Warren fell under the influence of Fats Domino's drummer Charlie "Hungry" Williams.
Warren signed a contract with local impressario J.D. Miller and became a singer, too. His first record, released under the monkier Warren Storm (Schexnider was too long to fit on a 45 label, Warren declared), 1958's "The Prisoner's Song" b/w "Mama, Mama, Mama" sold a quarter of a million copies.
