WILLY DEVILLE SHOULD BE IN THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME
It was one year ago today that probably our all-time favorite singer (Sorry, Elvis!) Willy DeVille passed away. We can’t say enough good things about him. We’ll never forget his macho posturing onstage or his ethnic street-wise songs filled with romantic yearning. He was a fierce and foppish dresser – from his elegant velvet collared frock coats to his exaggerated pompadour. He did steampunk before it had a name. This is a very early photo of Willy and his first wife Toots, whom he married at 17. She bears a strong resemblance to Amy Winehouse. We think Willy should be inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame – please sign this petition.
