    There are so many great musicians that were born in Fort Worth.

    Absolutely right about Ft Worth (and the Metroplex).....I'm gonna go with Buddy Whittington.
    Honorable mentions......Mace (Mike) Maben, Bugs Henderson, Roger Miller, Ornette Coleman, Ray Sharpe, Delbert McClinton, T-Bone Burnett, and King Curtis.
    There are actually more, but I need more coffee right now. ;)

    Jim Croce lived around the corner from me. Would see him riding his bike with an acoustic strapped on his back. Should have asked him to teach me. Charlie Garcie is my Daughter's neighbor. He still gigs locally, and in the UK.. Quite a few entertainers are from that area.

    Ozzy lived in my town for abit, he owned a wine bar and got drunk in it alot.

    It's still called Ozzy's

    When I got fired from Sabbath I thought: “This is it. What can I do now? I’ll buy a bar.” That lasted about a month. My ex-wife [Thelma] asked me very kindly if I wouldn’t mind staying at home and letting someone else run the pub. People weren’t coming in because I was mad, and I was drinking the profits every day. That was in Newport, Shropshire. It’s just next door to Staffordshire. I’m told that they still call that place Ozzy’s. I don’t know whether that’s true or not.
