About Nappy Brown
Musicians take note. If you ever want to double your credibility, fake your own death. That's not to say that Nappy Brown committed pseudocide, but the man was missing in action for years and thought to be dead. Some say he simply had amnesia, while others believe he was living on the streets. But no matter what the real story was, he resurfaced in 1984 to record Tore Up, an incredible work of songs including perhaps the best known version of Bob Dylan's "Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You."
