|Message:||I had the pleasure of meeting him a couple of years ago at the Black Gold Club in Mexia. He lives in nearby Waco and plays in Mexia often. He is a good friend of a good friend of mine. Billy Joe and I spoke at length about ... guess who? You got it, Mickey Newbury!
He is awesome, as a singer, songwriter, and just a down to earth good old guy. I remember when his son died. What a tragedy. And Billy has been through near death heart trouble himself, not to mention all the day to day tragedy that made his art what it is. He's a class act, to be sure.
As for me, I'm just and old chunk of coal.
Keeping in line with an old adage coined by LBJ, I will "vote early and vote often."
Love to all, Wm.
