The dead have a long reach.
And they can be patient.
Thus begins Sybil Rosen’s memoir of her time with the iconic Blaze Foley, back when he was known only as Depty Dawg — or Depty, to his friends.
Set into motion by the filming of Duct Tape Messiah, Rosen’s memoir of her journey – both past and present – gives an emotional portrait of his early incarnation: a shy hippie musician who called himself Depty Dawg.
The tale of Sybil’s search for forgotten memory begins in a tree house where they lived in the woods of west Georgia, the summer of 1975. Here Depty Dawg began to write songs and dream up the life and legend of Blaze Foley.
