Bollin was thought to be dead until Chuck Nevitt of the Dallas Blues Society found him in Dallas in 1988. After forming a backing band, Nevitt recorded and produced Texas Bluesman, Bollin's first album on his own Dallas Blues Society Records, releasing it in 1989. Bollin toured behind the album, making appearances in the U.S. and overseas, but unfortunately, he passed away in October of 1990. Nevitt later sold the record to Antone's Records in Austin, who released it on CD and cassette around 1991.
By the way, Zuzu Bollin was born A.D. Bollin, but earned the nickname "Zuzu" in his early days as a musician from his band mates because he loved a particular brand of ginger snap cookies, called ZuZu's.
