TMP 133 Robert Gordon: A Writer on the Edge

The Grammy-winning author and filmmaker’s landmark book, "[It Came from Memphis ](https://therobertgordon.com/books#/it-came-from-memphis-updated-and-revised)," has just been reissued in a 25th anniversary revised edition. The cultural collisions between bluesman Furry Lewis, producer Jim Dickinson, Alex Chilton, pro wrestling, photographer Bill Eggleston, fife & drum bands, the Panther Burns, integration, and other disparate elements form a compelling narrative of outsiders, misfits, and rock ’n’ roll in this classic chronicle of the subterranean Memphis music scene. Robert believes that if you’re not on the edge, you’re taking up too much space. He should feel right at home with the Troubled Men. Topics include a virtual gala, a swingers convention recap, a new campaign platform, the Hard Rock demo, the Ring Room reopening, a new monolith, the flaw in the grain, a teenage quest, Mudboy and the Neutrons, Randall Lyons, a childhood memory, the N.O.-Memphis-Baltimore axis, Barbarian Records, a rule of thumb, Jack White’s Third Man Books, a letter of complaint, the ladies, sage advice, a film career, “The Best of Enemies,” the end of civility, an alternative strategy, “[Stranded in Canton](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1eDzz5fKio),” the Quaalude ‘70s, TeleVista, Pat Rainer, Tav Falco, Lee Baker, ghosts, lessons to learn, and much more.
