Spectacular book and well worth your time and money. Much gratitude to Rev. Keith for this monumental document.
Perry Baggs was one of a kind, both on and off stage. Rest in peace, my friend.
Yes, thanks, Jack! I watched the decline of that beautiful house with much sadness over the past several years. I purchased an antique bed from the junk dealers who inhabited it before the fire; even in the cluttered and neglected state it was in then, it was an impressive structure and I spent as much time looking at the house as the merchandise for sale. Glad I was able to spend time inside it and imagine what it once had been.
Vince was a sweet, funny guy who loved to entertain and never met a stranger. During the course of his illness I read many posts recounting how supportive and encouraging he was to the young musicians who came to see his bands play. If they couldn't afford to pay the cover, he made sure they got in anyway - that's just the kind of person he was. The world's a little duller without him, but keep an eye on the night sky: the next shooting star you see will be Vince on a Harley, roaring thru the heavens and singing at the top of his lungs! Godspeed, Vinny.
Done! Thanks for the reminder, Jack.
Wonderful article, Daryl, thank you.
A kind, noble man, a gifted musician and a visionary. If you're playing non-country music in Nashville today, you can thank Aashid and others who blew open the doors in the 80's. I look forward to reading more about Aashid in next week's Scene.
