|Steve Wesson, saw player
||Butch Hancock, guitar, harmonica, vocals
||Jimmie Dale Gilmore, guitar, vocals
||Tony Pearson, mandolin, vocals
||Joe Ely, guitar, dobro, harmonica, vocals
|Only other saw player
besides me that I ever met. The really strange thing is, my wife
used to live with this guy; she's got a thing for saw players...
||Used to play music
with this yayhoo & we've been on some adventures together
which I will NEVER speak of.
||Met this guy for
the first time in 1967 during a gig where his act preceded mine.
I thought he was the most unique singer I've ever encountered.
Good philosophizing buddy to this day...
||Tony & I knew
each other before we were 6 years old, although his younger sister
was the one I mostly played with. Helped him frame up his Horseshoe
Bend Canyon home, now owned by writer/historian Dan Flores.
||My earliest memory
of Joey is in 1969 when he played protest songs on the steps
of the campus library when we had a peace demonstration at Texas
Tech University. A truly great artist and great friend.
