Güterzüge und Gitarren - Die Jimmie Rodgers Biographie', read by Wiglaf Droste. Based on an exclusive audio book manuscript by Bettina Greve. 

Jimmie Rodgers is the pioneer of country music, 20 years before Hank Williams. Here is his first audio biography. Wiglaf Droste, born in 1961, columnist for taz and WDR, reads Jimmie Rodgers' first audio biography. Bob Dylan:'Jimmie Rodgers is one of the guiding lights of the 20th century.' Audio book with 21 original Rodgers songs.

Jimmie The Kid
(Rodgers-Neville), 1931

Jimmie Rodgers is one of the great beacons of the 20th century. His way of singing has always been a source of inspiration for us who have followed his path. Rodgers is a sparkling star whose music shone and continues to shine in a sea of conformity due to its uncut individuality. He was an artist full of strength, a pioneer who created his own sound, a sound that spoke of loneliness as well as mysticism and dynamics. He gave hope to the oppressed and taught the powerful humility and humility...

This is how Bob Dylan formulated it in the accompanying text to a tribute album that he dedicated to his musical guide Jimmie Rodgers. This album,'The Songs of Jimmie Rodgers', was released in 1997, the year Jimmie Rodgers would have turned 100. Bob Dylan had been able to inspire some of his artist colleagues for this posthumous tribute. Van Morrison, Aaron Neville, Bono von U2, John Mellencamp, Willie Nelson, Jerry Garcia and Steve Earle, to name but a few. They all took their hats off and bowed to the big little man to whom the entire singer/songwriter culture of North America goes back: their interpretations of Rodgers pearls and evergreens like Blue-Eyed Jane, the Mule Skinner Blues, Dreaming With Tears In My Eyes, Peach Pickin' Time In Georgia or Why Should I Be Lonely" show that the songs still last for many decades after they were written.

"I was just 16 years old and practiced on my guitar when I first heard Jimmie Rodgers," said country singer Hank Snow "I heard his song'Moonlight and Skies' - and was immediately captivated by it. Since then, all I wanted was to become a singer myself."

Besides Hank Snow the country musicians Lefty Frizzell and Webb Pierce as well as Ernest Tubb, Gene Autry and Bob Wills belonged to Rodgers' musical descendants in the 50s. Without Jimmie Rodgers, Hank Williams' success would have been unthinkable. Merle Haggard paid tribute to his idol in 1969 with the highly acclaimed double album'Different Time, Different Train'. Also in the 60s Johnny Cash began to include several Rodgers songs in his repertoire, even buying the rights to the artist's life story from his widow. He wanted to film Rodgers' biography for the cinema. Unfortunately, this film was never shot...

Artist description "Rodgers, Jimmie"

Jimmie Rodgers

The importance of Jimmie Rodgers (1897-1933) to the history of country music is a subject that has been analyzed extensively in the more than 70 years since his death in 1933. The true mark of an enduring musical form is its ability to change and evolve, and, for better or worse, country music still survives, although in a much different form than Rodgers or anyone else from his era could have imagined. It's difficult to discern, however, the influence of Rodgers in a performance by any of today's stars, such as Big and Rich, Toby Keith, or Carrie Underwood, but, nevertheless, it is there just the same. Every so often, one of these artists will sing a Rodgers song, usually one of Jimmie's most popular, such as Waiting For A Train or T For Texas, and the flickering flame shines a little bit brighter.

Rodgers' fire will never really go out because country music grew from his example, not only from the catalog of songs he sang, but from his personality, his attitudes, and his devotion to aspects of life that are still embraced by Americans as well as lovers of country music from around the world. Rodgers sang of many things. His songs dealt with devotion to family, hell-raising, work, illness, storytelling, tragedy, and love of family, much of this coming from his own personal experiences. All of these topics are still used by today's country performers. Although the songs might not be the same, and the instrumentation has morphed into a form that would have been unrecognizable to country music's early fans, the influence is still there, and it can all be traced back to Rodgers.

Jimmie Rodgers was country music's first star. Before he came along, hillbilly music, as it was then known, was seldom performed professionally. Its purveyors were common folk, musically untrained, with a lifestyle that centered on other professions. There were a few exceptions to this. Uncle Dave Macon had been in vaudeville for years and was a seasoned entertainer by the time he began recording in 1924. Vernon Dalhart had become a star through his recording of The Prisoner's Song, also in 1924, but Dalhart's fame was based on his interpretation of what a folk performer should sound like. His personality, like that of every other popular vocalist of his era, remained hidden and undefined.

Other than these few artists, early hillbilly performers were primarily employed in some other line of work. Rodgers, himself, was a brakeman, before tuberculosis forced him to find another, less strenuous way to earn a living. The only other thing he knew how to do was sing, and so, performing became his vocation. Even though Rodgers was far from the first person to record what would become country music, the genre was really born with his first session in August 1927. Before Rodgers, it didn't really matter who sang a folk song because the song was what mattered, not the singer.

Rodgers' catalog of songs drew from a variety of sources: traditional folk songs, Tin Pan Alley compositions, songs from vaudeville, blues, jazz, risqué novelty numbers, and Rodgers' own compositions. Rodgers infused each of these song with his own personality so effectively, that his fans thought he had written everything he sang, and that his life was full of pistol packin' papas, mean mamas, bounders, and rounders. In truth, only a handful of his songs had to do directly with his own life: most notably, the train songs (Waiting For A Train) and songs about his illness (T.B. Blues). But Jimmie Rodgers changed country music from a song-oriented genre to one that focused on the personality of the performer. The Carter Family, who made their recording debut at the same session as Rodgers, the famous Victor sessions in Bristol, Virginia, were more influential for the songs they sang than from their own personalities. Although their respective influence has been substantial in their own field, it was Rodgers who became a star.
