ガス・キャノン Gus Cannon

1983年9月12日にミシシッピー州レッド・バンクスで生まれました。ジャグ・バンドのバンジョー奏者です。子供の頃からお手製のバンジョーを弾いていて、1915年頃から10年間余り、メディシン・ショウにバンジョー・ジョーの芸名で参加し全国を巡業しています。1916年にメンフィスの北にあるリップレイに移り、巡業のない日は農作業をして暮らしていました。その頃に彼はハープのノア・ルイスやギターのアシュリー・トンプソンと知り合って、一緒にパーティなど演奏していました。1928年にビクターのスカウトの依頼で、ノア・ルイス、アシュリー・トンプスンとキャノンズ・ジャグ・ストンパーズ( The Cannon's Jug Stompers )を結成して1928年1月31日に録音しました。以後、メンバーは変更になりますが、1930年11月28日までに29曲の吹き込みを行ないました。その後、ガス・キャノンは消息不明でしたが、1963年1月にルーフトップ・シンガーズの歌った「ウォーク・ライト・イン」がビルボード誌第一位のヒットになり、メンフィスで鉄道の構内夫をしていたところを再発見されました。それからスタックスに13曲の録音を残しています。1979年にメンフィスで亡くなりました。
