Texas Or Outer Space

"Your pal, Butch Hancock, thinks Buddy Holly was an alien," Dave Marsh once told me.


"Well, it sure the fuck didn't come from Lubbock, Texas!"

I asked Butch about his beliefs some time later. He just laughed. He did show me pictures on his phone of a flying saucer that he took from his back porch.

When I look back at Fats Domino, Little Richard, Elvis and most of my early heroes I am truly amazed. Nothing had ever sounded like that and nothing had ever looked like that.

I'm back on the radio Friday with my invisible friend, Bev. I hope it sounds like I'm completely swept away by the music because I am. Believe me, I am.
