Everette Maddox moved to new Orleans in the mid 1970s, after completing his studies at the University of Alabama. A man of contradictions — he was by turns concerned with good manners and appearance, yet spent many years living on the streets, drinking and smoking to excess — he was an instant hit with the creative scene he discovered there. He soon became the unofficial poet laureate of Carrollton, and founded the Maple Leaf Bar reading series, which is now the oldest continuously running reading series in the South. In his lifetime, Mr Maddox published three collections of poetry: The 13 Original Poems, The Everette Maddox Songbook and Bar Scotch. He died of esophageal cancer in February 1989, no doubt brought on by years of drinking, smoking and poor nutrition. He had no health insurance, and what little medical care he did receive came only for a final few days following his admittance to new Orleans' Charity Hospital. After his death, a memorial was placed on the patio at the Maple Leaf, which reads simply: " He was a mess."
