This is an easier and more entertaining read than Brown's book, it isn't really an academic work like Brown's. It's in Graphic Novel form and I know some people hold preconceptions about reading comic books, but I really think the time is past when anyone can reasonably hold the position that "comics are just for kids," so I'm recommending Stagger Lee here. Highly, in every legally acceptable interpretation :wink: 8) :mrgreen:

Stack o' Lee (or Stagger Lee) is supposed to be based upon a real person.

Not just supposed, actually based on.
For an in-depth account of Shelton's story and the song's development etc. read Stagolee Shot Billy.
