Michael Buffalo Smith has been writing about music and performing for over 30.

Michael Buffalo Smith has been writing about music and performing for over 30 years, working with everyone from The Allman Brothers Band to Delaney & Bonnie to George Harrison, from Billy Bob Thornton to Charlie Daniels. His memoir, PRISONER OF SOUTHERN ROCK, with a foreword by Billy Bob Thornton. Before becoming a writer, Buffalo worked as a Radio Personality for many years and went to college to study acting and improvisation. Well, that is best told in my latest book, Prisoner of Southern Rock (Mercer University Press).

Prisoner of Southern Rock is the unlikely story of one Southern boy s rise from near poverty to a respected Southern music historian, specializing in the sub-genre known as Southern Rock. The book traces Smith s journey from his meager beginnings in upstate South Carolina to his work as a musician and journalist during his college years and his destined founding of the Southern rock magazine Gritz following a near-death experience from a chronic bacterial infection. The memoir combines stories from his childhood with stories of life on the road, backstage, and onstage with many of the bands he worshipped as idols during his early years. Included are nail-biting tales of his complicated birth and, sometimes, turbulent life including a month-and-a-half stay in the hospital during the summer of 1998 that found him dying on the operating room table-twice. There are also stories of his friendships including on and offstage experiences with bands such as The Allman Brothers, The Marshall Tucker Band, Charlie Daniels, Molly Hatchet, and many others. Prisoner of Southern Rock also includes never before seen photographs, quotes from Southern Rock s finest, and an annotated list of the 100 Defining Moments in the History of Southern Rock. These are the life and times of the man known around the world as the ambassador of Southern Rock.
  • This is a fantastic book about a "relatively" unknown musician, philanthropist, writer & archiver of Southern Rock - Michael Buffalo Smith. Smith, originally from South Carolina has been writing about, archiving, & performing Southern Rock for approximately 30 years. He was the former editor & publisher of "GRITZ" magazine for around 13 years, starting around 1998. In the "GRITZ" magazine, he wrote about Southern Rock, Southern Music in general, & Southern Culture.

    The book contains an excellent introduction, written by "Native Southerner/Movie Star", Billy Bob Thornton. Billy Bob is a personal friend of the author, Micheal Buffalo Smith. The book contains photos of the author with Billy Bob Thornton.

    This book is a well written memoir about Smith's experiences, including experiences with The Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Marshall Tucker Band, The Charlie Daniels Band, Molly Hatchet, Southern Rock Allstars, Blackfoot, The Outlaws & Hughie Thomasson, Wet Willie & Jimmy Hall, Black Oak Arkansas & Jim Dandy, Bonnie & Bekka Bramlett, Dickey Betts, Artimus Pyle, "Mama Louise" of H & H Resturant, in Macon, GA., Grant's Lounge in Macon, GA., and many, many other people & places involved in "Southern Rock". This book also covers the Walden brothers & Capricorn Records, of Macon, Georgia. "Mama Louise" used to feed the Allman Brothers Band members, when they lived in the "Big House" in Macon, GA. This book even covers some experiences the author shared with Texas Music Legends, Edgar & Johnny Winter.

    The book contains several photo's of the author, along side such "Southern Rock Greats", such as Dickey Betts, Artimus Pyle, Charlie Daniels (The "Godfather of Southern Rock"), and many, many others, including "Mama Louise".

    This book is an excellent reference book about Southern Rock, as well as a memoir of a Great Man, full of great Southern Rock experiences. It also contains some of the author's personal experiences in life in general, including some "Near Death" experiences & some personal hardships the author went through. It kind of reminds me of the movie "Almost Famous", which is basically a story about Rock journalist Cameron Crowe, who also had many experiences with Southern Rock bands. This book even covers the Cameron Crowe story.

    I love Southern Rock, and consider this a "must-have", for Southern Rock fans. After reading this book, I just wonder how did I not previous know of this man, Michael Buffalo Smith. He had already written a previous book about South Carolina, Southern Rock. Plus, he is from the same hometown as the Marshall Tucker Band. Also, after reading this book, I found Mr. Buffalo's writings & experiences with & about "Southern Rock" to be astondishingly amazing. THIS GUY REALLY KNOWS WHAT HE'S WRITING ABOUT. There is no doubt, he is TRULY, THE "WORLD'S AMBASSADOR OF SOUTHERN ROCK".

  • Great Book written from the heart if you like southern rock than this one is for you....Buffalo tells a great story in a wonderful Southern style...
