BROTHER DEGE’S SONG “TOO OLD TO DIE YOUNG” HAND-CHOSEN BY QUENTIN TARANTINO FOR HIS NEW FILM “DJANGO UNCHAINED”

Brother Dege (“deej”) (aka Dege Legg) is one of the best-kept secrets in the Deep South. A musician, writer and Southern enigma, Dege is the haunted face of 21st century Delta blues. Like the possessed offspring of Faulkner and Son House, he plays slide guitar in the age-old tradition of the blues greats, yet manages to breathe new life into this revered Delta idiom.

Well, make that… was one of the best-kepts secrets… as the reclusive Louisiana Cajun’s song “Too Old To Die Young” was personally selected by Quentin Tarantino to appear in the soundtrack of his new film Django Unchained, starring Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson.

Tarantino describes his method of utilizing music (old and new) into the soundtrack of Django Unchained [from the director's press release]: “I want to thank all the artists who contributed original songs (a first for me) to the picture. Most of these contributions came out of the artists’ own inspiration and their illustration of the film’s soul is invaluable. In addition to the new original songs I am also using a lot of older recordings on the soundtrack – many of which came from my personal vinyl collection. Instead of having the record companies give me new digitally cleaned up versions of these recordings from the ’60s and ’70s, I wanted to use the vinyl I’ve been listening to for years – complete with all the pops and cracks. I even kept the sound of the needle being put down on the record. Basically because I wanted people’s experience to be the same as mine when they hear this soundtrack for the first time.”

The soundtrack for Django Unchained will be released on December 18th before the movie opens on Christmas Day.

I went with my fiancee on Xmas to see Django Unchained. When the Dege song started playing in it, we both said "hey, thats Dege!" at the same time. Thats way cool. I am super excited for him.
I hope this opens even more doors for him.
