    Wasn't it Roy Buchanan who supposedly got the offer to join the Stones?

    Roger Miller looks like Noddy Holder's brother and can sure scratch that fiddle. Gatton was off the charts as usual.

    Gah, guess you're right. Memory is a gimmick.

    At the beginning of the video Roger mentions his first song, written in 1958, was "Invitation To The Blues" he wrote and recorded with Ray Price.

    Here's a video of Roger and Ray performing that song.

    Damn! DG is something else. I too never knew Roger Miller played the fiddle till I watched Ken Burns’ Country Music and they briefly mentioned that he originally started out on the fiddle. This is the first I’ve seen him play. He can hold his own, but DG is on his own planet.
