Doug was a Pearl;)
I sold him a stereo system when I was 20, in 1977.
Cool, hyper, regular guy.
I saw him command the Rome Inn in 1978.
Master showman/entertainer/musician.
I had the great fortune to play with three of his sidemen, brilliant drummer Ernie Durawa, and the late, great Harvey Kagan (bass), and (late) Harry Hess (guitar, psg).
Doug was a joy.
RIP, and thanks, Sir Douglas.

Very cool Bill, I'm certainly envious!

I only got to see him once, here in RI on 4/14/81. It was on the "Border Wave" tour with the Sir Douglas Quintet. The show was very lightly attended, but they were SPEACTACULAR. I'm so very happy that I was there! Finding the "Doug Sahm And Band" album in the cutout bin of a record store around 1974 was an eye opener! Been a rabid fan ever since.

I've got the two Austin City Limits DVD's, and the Texas Tornados ACL DVD and they are still in heavy roration. ;0)

Hi Kfan, driving trucks doesn't leave me much time to myself.
Flat out from dawn 'til dusk, tired all the time. Seems like the older I get the more work I have to do.
