Fictional blues musician invented by Downbeat magazine writer Don DeMicheal in 1959 as a joke on Blind Lemon Jefferson, and DeMichael didn't expect his bosses to publish it. They thought it was funny after and kept dropping references in the magazine here and there.

Described in Jazz Anecdotes by Bill Crow (1990).

The name even made it into Billboard (March 16, 1963) and Cash Box (May 23, 1964) magazines.
