Best-known as the chainsaw-playing frontman of the rowdy Southern hard rock band Jackyl, Jesse James Dupree elected to pursue a solo side project in 2000, forming a backing band featuring guitarist John Hayes and Brother Cane bassist Roman Glick. Released that summer, the resulting album, Foot Fetish, gave Dupree a chance to explore other favorite musical influences, from the Who to '60s R&B. In 2008 Dupree released his second solo album, Rev It Up and Go-Go. Described as "20 tracks of crunchy rock, cool country and old-timey radio show revelry", the album featured a small army of musicians and friends known collectively as "Dixie Inc." ~ Steve Huey, Rovi
