What are you, like some kind of Rock n'Roll encyclopedia? HOW do you know all these guys?
You must have been around back in the day when all this was taking shape. I was born in 61, followed mostly southern rock as long as I can remember, then bluegrass and some jazz. I've played guitar since I was 8, mostly in the shower (no wait, that's my singing).
Your posts, your "myspace", and emails are jammed
full of all kinds of information I've wondered about for years.
Have you written a book on all of this, or have one in the making? Just curious.Thanks again and keep it coming,
The great thing about my blog is that over three years of my life are recorded on the Internet. Two of those three years have been spent documenting my rock'n roll heroes.
I am 56 which is almost ten years younger than Buddy & The Gang but when they were 20 hanging out with Orbison in Dothan, I was riding my bicycle around town playing peeping tom and listening to jam sessions. I never knew Justo, Daughtry, Buie or Nix but I knew the late John Rainey Adkins real well and his brother, David, has been a good friend since childhood. I don't know Bobby Goldsboro but I know both his kids, his inlaws, his parents and his ex-wife.
Growing up in Dothan, I hung out with all the musicians who were my age so when I started this blog, everyone stepped up to help.
If I ever do put together a book, it will occur for one reason. Somebody paid me to do it.
If someone has a rock 'n roll question, I can go to my blog archives, perform a search and often get results. Then I spam all of the usual suspects and WAH LAH! we get feedback. With Skynyrd getting into the Rock Hall of Fame and Orbison getting their attention this year, we may even get those Yankee Shitheads in Cleveland to ask some intelligent questions.
One of the things that intrigues my son more than anything else about me is that I can remember the world without Rock Music. He says he couldn't imagine living in a world without Rock Music.
Glad you appreciate want us po' ass, barefooted Rebel Sons of Bitches are trying to do.
