Good band. Saw them once, with the Outlaws.
We will understand it better bye and bye.

Me, too. Like in the late 70's. The opening band was Grinderswitch. Then the Outlaws.

being from Charlotte, they were from down the road.
never saw them live, but had their cd's. my teen years they were
on everywhere.

I had forgotten the story of how they got their name.
must have been a good dude.

fyi I saw the Outlaws on the same bill as Pure Prairie League
at the fairgrounds in Charlotte. only time I saw either band.

I had heard early on that when they rented an empty warehouse to rehearse in, Marhsall Tucker was the name on a tag for the front door key. Didn't know the blind piano tuner part.

Went to the Roundup too — the weather was hot as hell. Think I drank a 12 pack and sweated it all out!

For a day in mid June
It was very hot
The good thing is the skies opened up with some very welcoming rain
I remember some folks were enjoying a friendly mud slide on the field
Oh to be 18 again
