Kommentar

Commendation Quotes: I once made the analogy that Doug was like St. Sebastian--pierced by 1,000 arrows--but instead of blood, talent coming out of every wound. I really regard him as the best musician I ever knew, because of his versatility, and the range of his information and taste. Table of Contents: Prologue: A Real American Joe -- 1.

Borderlands -- Epilogue: Guitar Slim -- Selected Discography -- Index -- Index of Song Titles. Commendation Quotes: Doug was like me, maybe the only figure from that period of time that I connected with. His was a big soul. He had a hit record, 'She's About a Mover, ' and I had a hit record ['Like a Rolling Stone'] at the same time. So we became buddies back then, and we played the same kind of music. We never really broke apart. We always hooked up at certain intervals in our lives. . . . I'd never met anyone who'd played on stage with Hank Williams before, let alone someone my own age. Doug had a heavy frequency, and it was in his nerves. . . . I miss Doug. He got caught in the grind. He should still be here.
