great tune and back when Kenny was a bass player and cool as hell.
I saw The First Edition at Knotts in the early 70s
I love playing this song.... mmmmmmelllll great songwriting.
the backward guitar stuff is all...... Glen Campbell.
this is a good tune.
I think Ima learn it.
Love the Badfinger tune!
Kenny was a great entertainer, and an astute businessman.
Ruby always reminds me of the era, and it’s great writer/singer/entertainer Mel Tillis.
Those kinds of entertainers are all gone now.
Kenny, Mel, and Pete Ham and Tom Evans Of Badfinger.
RIP, and thanks, gentlemen.
man, this was a big song in our house... Mike Settle (songwriter) used to sing backup for a friend of mine. what a great song.
gotta dig the SGs!
jose... he was a wild one...
Kenny also once had Rick Nelson (yes, that Ricky Nelson) appear on his television show, "Rollin' On The River" in, I believe, 1971.
Rick is doin' "Gypsy Pilot", which the end of eerily sounds like a plane crash (Rick, as we all know, perished in a plane crash on December 31, 1985). Rick then goes to the piano and does a fairly good version of The Rolling Stones "Honky Tonk Women" with Kenny. The funny part is that Kenny almost couldn't hit those high harmony notes. LOL!
Anyway, here's the clip:
Got no complaints.
Just Dropped In is a tune I’ve done for years. My arrangement is mostly Mickey Newbury with a big tip of the hat to The First Edition
Kenny put on a fine show with a lot of energy
I also do Baby Blue and Day After Day by Badfinger.
Skinny Kenneth Rogers 1957
Back then he was known as Kenneth. Even as a teenager, he was doing studio work on bass in Houston.
I remember his little tv show so well now that you bring it up. We had only been living in our first purchased home for a little while then. We had a pretty humble little place but we were moving up. Kenny's show was almost like he just dropped by your house for a visit, it was low key to say the least. We really enjoyed it every week. I always liked Kenny music. One time my wife, and sister in law and I were six feet from the door to go in and see Kenny in Vegas, when my brother in law ran up to us and pulled us out of line to do something else. Many is the time I wished that at least my wife and I had gone on in to see Kenny, and let Goofus go about his business.
I gotta say though, the Kenny from that TV show he used to do, is not the Kenny that became rich and famous, those two guys might not even be related. Different style, different guy. He was pretty cool in some old TV western too, but I only remember him being dressed up like a cowboy, I don't remember anything else about it. I think he might have still been a little on the chubby side in the show I'm talking about.
Every time I hear this song, I think of Walter White dying in the meth lab at the end of the last episode of Breaking Bad.
