Blackfoot reportedly picked up his musical name as a young man walking the tarred sidewalks of Memphis barefoot. And like the perennial "black sheep" of the family, he's not the first "relation" you'd introduce to someone on whom you were trying to make a good first impression with your Southern Soul "family"--that's for sure.
