Sample text

Were already big successes with Buddy, they were on an actual album cover, and I was just so big on anything to do with rock ’n’ Bobby Keys 23 roll, especially people who’d recorded music and gotten out of Lubbock. Which was not easy to do. Anyway, they’d congregate down at Doc’s house, and I’d get to listen to the latest thing that they’d done at Norman Petty’s studio in Clovis. They used to bring the acetates back, those big ol’ twelve-inch things. They were like platters. After you’d record a song, they’d make an acetate of it, a “dub” is what they called it.

Because I didn’t have any other skills. Other than being a tightrope walker. A drunk tightrope walker. Those were some good days, though, on that Caravan of Stars tour. I remember looking around at the people riding on the bus and thinking, Entertainers, when they’re not onstage entertaining, they look different. On the bus they just looked like ordinary people. Sometimes when I looked at ’em I’d think, OK, now, that’s Freddie Cannon—but he doesn’t look like the Freddie Cannon that you see in pictures in Hit Parade magazine.

But I met him. It was quick, but I met him. I remember he said something like, “I’d like to thank you, son. ” Actually, he wasn’t wearing blue suede shoes. I looked. No, I didn’t say much, man. I was a teenager, eighteen years old. I didn’t say anything. This was the king! The undisputed king of rock ’n’ roll, and I just played on one of his records, and if I don’t die of a heart attack before I get outta here it’ll be really cool. I mean, that was the coolest thing I did for a long time, in my mind, anyway.
