The 136 must be pretty damn cool then.

Buck was definately one of those guys who walked the thin line b'twixt cool and stoopid.
According to Nashville Babylon he posed for unpublished Playgirl pics:"They shot him cavorting on his horse, shooting pool and romping in an alfalfa field" all, ahem, buck naked!
Still as a session musician Buck can be heard on some blistering early rock n roll records by Wanda Jackson and Gene Vincent and as the chief architect of The Bakersfield Sound respect is most surely due.
