Satan & Adam

At first glance, the biracial blues duo Satan and Adam appeared to be diametrically opposed: a Jewish Ivy League graduate playing harmonica alongside the legendary Black Mississippi blues man Sterling "Mr. Satan" Magee in New York City? Somehow it worked, an unlikely pair that nevertheless complemented each other perfectly through their music. Garnering the attention of U2 and releasing a celebrated debut album seemed to have them primed for stardom, but their rise was cut short by Mr. Satan's mysterious and sudden disappearance.
