Got to sit down and chat with Roy after a show, talking about being at Capitol Records at the same time as Gene Vincent and Wanda Jackson (Roy played in her band), and his friendships with Buck Owens and Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown. Damn that was a good night.

Always heard He started with Jimmy Dean and the Sausage King fired him for being a hell raiser.

He also told me about being best friends with Roger Miller, who'd come over for BBQs, and they'd sit in the yard with their guitars, playing and making up silly songs. If I could be a fly on the wall for those sessions...
