Screamin´ Joe Neal

Two legendary 45s, one on the Emerge label, one on Shippings. A mainstay at the Peppermint Club at Skinker and Delmar in St Louis, the biggest club around at the time, as well as the BQ Lounge and Jazz Alley. One local guitarist recalls "He got his name from crawling around the audience on his knees. He would creep up on a woman and scream at them. Scare the shit outta them." Screamin' Joe was hit by a truck and is largely paralyzed. Read My Space
