    Not the long haired guy with the moustache, but all the other musicians were making their living in my - now - home town.

    Bill Withers is originally from a coal town near Beckley WV


    Kathy Mattea is from Charleston


    Brad Paisley is from Glen Dale


    Billy Ray Cyrus is from KY but used to play weekly in a dive bar in the West end here (Huntington WV). You don't want me to post the Achy Breaky Heart video, do you? Instead I'll post an oldie from Zachariah, a local band that took a run at fame in the late 70s early 80s, but didn't quite make it

    From my tiny little town I think we can boast one member of Judas Priest ( Glenn Tipton lives about four miles away from my house), where Robert Plant went to grammar school and a finalist from Britain’s Got Talent.
    However, if I broadened the radius a bit I guess we’d get Black Sabbath, The Wonderstuff, Judas Priest, The Move ( and therefore part of ELO) , The (English) Beat, Diamond Head, Duran Duran, Musical Youth, UB40, Steel Pulse, half of Led Zeppelin, Beverley Knight, Slade. My son’s teacher used to be in Pop Will Eat Itself.
    Probably some people from the 21st century but they will have passed me by...

    Letters to Cleo
    Mighty Mighty Bosstones
    Belly

    Duane Eddy, 1958, "Rebel Rouser". Album cover at :13 -- :16 is taken at ramada at South Mountain Park, overlooking Phoenix. I'm not originally from Phoenix, Army sent me here in 1987 and I pretty much stayed.
