My hero! A great shot of a straight shooter. Boy, mainstream country music sure could do with someone like him nowadays.
Boy, mainstream country music sure could do with someone like him nowadays.I agree, but nowadays he wouldn't get through the front door. Or even the back one.
Nobody else could come up with a song like The Last Word in Lonesome Is Me. Genius pure and simple.Once I interviewed Roy Clark, and asked him about his friendship with Miller. I guess they were great pals, and Clark said he had some tapes of them just playing tunes at a backyard BBQ. What I wouldn't give to hear those recordings...
Ahh, yes, the first album I ever owned was Roger Miller/ Golden Hits. I told my parents I wanted it for Christmas in 1965. Loved it. Made me wanna holla hidy hoe! :)
"I wish I had what you had / and you had a do-whacka do whacka do""roses are red / violets are purple / sugar is sweet / so's maple syrple."dang me if that man didn't have as much poetic fluidity as the honorous Little Richard Penniman!
