"White Boy Singin' the Blues" is both a musical history of Memphis, the city which gave birth to rock'n'roll, and an examination of the ways in which white and black musics have interacted. In this work, Michael Bane examines the whole history of the music, from the black roots of spirituals and blues, through the beginnings of rock'n'roll, and its evolution through the Twist, the British Invasion, Motown, funk, Southern boogie, and disco. The result is an idiosyncratic history of rock, and a culturally penetrating account of this hybrid music.
