There was no one like Willy DeVille. From CBGB Latin Punk to New Orleans soul singer to the voice of American Roots music in Europe for three decades, he was one of the most original, most romantic artists of his time. Nobody inhabited as many musical styles and personas. Everything about him was a work of art. He sold a million records and was respected by his peers from Ben E. King to Bob Dylan. His songs were anthems to the heartbroken and the downtrodden. Yet almost no one knows where he came from or who he loved. That is the mystery of Willy DeVille.
