Willy DeVille is best-known as the leader of Mink DeVille, one of the many bands who emerged from the New York City punk scene in the mid-70s along with The Ramones, Patti Smith, Blondie and Television. Willy DeVille was a huge fan of the R&B groups of the 1950s such as The Drifters along with blues, Latin soul, and Creole. He went solo in the 1980s, gaining his biggest fame with the song Storybook Love that appeared on the soundtrack to The Princess Bride. He passed away three years ago, but his music continues to be reissued, especially in Europe.
