Poor Bobby NEVER
We got him hooked up once in Bossier City
and the poor girl couldn't get out of her room for three days.Man he was happy!
There are a lot of Bobby
When the army was after him we got a girl from Jacksonville
to marry him because the law was that they wouldn't draft you if you were married.
I think that she was a friend of a friend of Robert Nix
and we gave her $100.00
or some small pittance. When it got changed to you had to have children that's when we knew that he was doomed.
I do seem to recall an instance when we found out after the fact, that he had been watching "a show"
in fact I think that it was in Miami .
You could have very well heard Georgia Pines
at the ParTee
but you probably heard the James Gang
do it because they released a version before we did.
We recorded it as an afterthought because we needed another song for the album, and I did it in I believe one takeI wasn't exactly thrilled when the record company decided to make it our first single.Bobby Brean
, I don't know how I remembered that 40 years later.I was close at least.
Wish I could remember what happened last week.Man we LOVED the ParTee !!Great times,great owner,beautiful girls.Baby it was a LARGE TIME !
What do you do for a livin' now?RODNEY JUSTO
To Rodney From TimRodney,
Appreciate the reply. Thank God, I thought I went to "Fantasy Island"! I didn't detail...didn't want to offend anyone. It was in Miami
. We all were drinking at the bar when you all were relating the story. I still can see Bobby Brean
literally rolling on the floor crying from laughing so hard...like the rest of us.
I live on a little golf course (my passion..next to my 3rd wife & last) in St. Louis
. I have been in the chemical industry (legal) for 28 years, sales...it's been a good ride to date. Still play occasionally, a single with drum machine...it never speeds up. Being a bass player my chord knowledge makes me maintain the KISS method..keep it simple stupid.
After reading all the mention of the Par Tee
on this thread by the groups that passed through, I can't tell you how refreshing it is to hear someone FINALLY appreciate and understand what that club truly was about...it just wasn't another lounge stop. It was "FANTASY ISLAND". Dennis Yost
felt the same too when I spent some time one evening with him in Tampa in the mid 80's. What are you doing these day's?Tim

Subject :An Email I sent to Buddy Buie Concerning Roy OrbisonBuddy:
Ya know I put all kinds of rock 'n roll stories on my blog and I've heard a couple about you.
I'd love to have permission to post anything you write but a little bird told me you have some of Orbison's
clothes. The story goes that Roy
was a closet smoker and didn't want his wife to discover he was smoking. While he was staying at your place on Lake Eufaula, he left his clothes with you because he knew his wife would smell cigarette smoke on them if he took them back to Tennessee.
Any comments will be appreciated.

I can reply to any stories about Roy
being a closet smoker.
He smoked Disque Bleu cigarettes
when we worked together.Or at least when he could get them.Robert
were the only non-smokers.
I had a heart attack in 1988
Not long after that I went to a party in New York
that was being thrown for Roy
at the Hard Rock
by,I think Bruce Springsteen
I hadn't seen Roy
in quite some time and asked him "didn't you have some heart problems a couple of years ago"
We talked for a while about life ,health, the passing of time,all the while he was puffin' away on the cigarettes.
His wife was right there when he was smoking so I doubt that he was a closet smoker .RODNEY JUSTO

I can add a couple of details to your account of the Roy Orbison
Roy came to my house outside of Doraville to write with Ronnie Hammond
and me. He also loved a song Hammond and I had written called AWESOME
LOVE and wanted to adapt it to his style for his upcoming recording
session. I cherish those few days now since that was the last time I
Roy laughing hysterically when I sang AWESOME LOVE doing my best
The goosebumps I got hearing Roy sing our song. He died before he got
a chance to recorded it.
Roy going nuts over fried lobster and creme brulle when we went to
Panos and Pauls. He said it was so good it gave him a nosebleed. Later
Pano had that same
dinner delivered backstage when Roy played Chastain Park. He loved it.
Roy saying "throw these clothes away,Barbara doesn' know I'm smoking
again" Later my wife Gloria washed them and they're still in my
My car breaking down on the way to the airport .We didn't have time to
call a cab so the wrecker driver dropped my car at a service station
and took us to the airport in his wrecker. I can still hear him saying
"my God it's Roy Orbison'"
He had a legendary voice and a kind heart. All of us who knew him were
