Southern Culture on the Skids

Formed in 1983, North Carolina.  Rockabilly/Surf/Amazing!!!  I saw them in Austin, Cleveland (twice), Buffalo and Indianapolis.  No, I'm not a stalker I just happened to be living in all these places when they toured.  Can't wait until they come through the San Fran area!  Go see them, don't miss them, you'll always be thankful you caught them live!  They are the best show out there!  And... they are the nicest, down-to-earth folks you'll ever meet!
This video is of one of my favorite songs (and the one that turned me on to them... "Little Debbie, Little Debbie")  It's pretty early but trust me they have aged very well!  You'll also like "Banana Pudding", "Liquored Up and Lacquered Down", "Eight Piece Box" and well...all of their songs.  If you see them live you'll get a real treat to Rick's guitar talent especially his long surf solo's!!
Enjoy and check them out!
 And another great performance:
(you can see how Rick got gray)

Also, a couple of pictures from one of my "adventures", erm um meetings with them
Rick and Mary on stage
 Mary and me.  She is so sweet and a great musician/singer!!
Rick and... yeah... giddy me  (check out the guy in the background, eew)
In spite of my admittingly foolish, star-struck behavior, I want to encourage you to check them out.  They are fantastic musicians and hard-working, real people! 
I won't ever tell you about my getting on stage with them fiasco  Though, my daughter might.  Sssshhhh! (hey, all the girls were invited up at every show to throw out the fried chicken!)

Missing Texas

I used to live in Waco.  Where Pat was from and hung out before he got famous.  His (early) songs were quintessential Texas and have and always will speak to my Texas Soul.
Funny side note.  My ex-husband designed the Billy Bob's logo.  Long, interesting story.

A face with an Afro

My across the street neighbors house has a face.  Even hubby saw it right away.  Can you see it?
No, not the bunny!  The "guy".
It's much brighter (and obvious) in person but this is the best my camera could do from across the street.

A cool video

I got this from my new blog friend over at Vintage South
Have loved Ray since he came on the scene.  Looking at him reminds me of James Taylor.
