A World Gone Crazy: The Trials of John Gary Williams

Forty years after his career was ruined by his mother’s murder, the Vietnam draft, the end of his record label, and a wrongful conviction, “Mad Lads” front man John Gary Williams is out to regain his voice. But to do it, he must achieve redemption and clarify a tangled, painful past. To see his work take its rightful place among the superstars of Memphis’ legendary STAX Records, Williams must harness his anger, come to terms with the past, and apologize to someone who needs to hear it most.
