    A little Ray Wylie is always good for my soul.

    Really like Ray Wylie. He's written some great songs. I've got one album I've been playing for decades...

    Mr. Hubbard has influenced a lot of my songwriting in the last few years...that man can rock and roll.

    He's like the "go to" guy for a lot of awards shows. He's produced a little band called "The Rolling Stones", he also produced Bonnie Raitt's "Nick of Time" album, and the B-52's ("Cosmic Thing" - think "Love Shack"). He's the head of Blue Note Records now. And he started in a little band out of Detroit called "Was Not Was" (big hit "Walk the Dinosaur") He's been around the block.

    Awesome but what are those finger picks or are they some kind of acrylic nail?!

    He’s another one of those guys that’s just slipped by the mainstream for so long it’s ridiculous.

    I was going to ask about Was Not Was. That was my jam when I was a kid.

    that being said, it def could have been Jeff Ross in a wig and fake beard.

    is that Joe Walsh playing slide guitar?


    I should probably watch that video again.

    I first learned about Ray from Jerry Jeff's version of Redneck Mothers. Saw him play one night at a really small bar in Overbrook, Oklahoma somewhere around 1976. It was a great night and it was the first time I saw anyone known that close up. The guy rocked. I knew he was from Dallas, born in OK, so he must have played bars in the area. I always felt like Up against the wall launched Jerry Jeff, and Ray missed the fame that came with it.

    I swear RWH and Tony Joe White came from the same mother.
