Smokestack Lightnin' Home Page -- The Blues Profile Page

doug legacyDoug Legacy is originally from Houston, Texas, but also lived in Louisiana and Arkansas in his younger days, where he acquired a taste for Gumbo, Delta Blues, Zydeco and Cajun Music. So, for him it was, musically and geographically, a short way to New Orleans and the local music scene around Dr. John, the Meters or the Neville Brothers. Now he lives in Los Angeles and over the years became sort of a a cult figure playing his red hot mixture of Zydeco, Voodoo Soul, New Orleans Funk, Blues and Rock’n’Roll.

When Doug had moved to Los Angeles in the late 70's, he hooked up with Rod Stewart to play steel drums on a European tour, which was followed by 15 or so years of tours with bands such as E.L.O., Jackson Browne, Billy Joel, Rickie Lee Jones, Simon & Garfunkel, Stevie Nicks, Bruce Hornsby, Joe Cocker and The Tubes. One of his favorite tours was singing in Todd Rundgren's "11 Voice Orchestra," supporting his album "Accapella".

He has recordings released in Japan and Europe and is now available in the U.S. on Wildcat Records. He has recently (2005) collaborated with the Swiss band “The Donkey Biters" on their new release "Sittin' On Top Of The World".
