Memphis Man: Living High, Laying Low by Don Nix is a memoir of a Memphis music legend who played sax in an instrumental band, the Mar-Keys, that scored one of Stax Records first Top 10 hits, and then went on to become a prolific songwriter and record producer. His song, “Going Down,” has been recorded by Pearl Jam, Led Zeppelin, Sammy Hagar, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Deep Purple, The Who and many others.
