Your first performance (you can recall): [First paid performance.] It was Spring of 1963 at the Buckhorn Saloon in Melville, La. with a band called The Knights - later it became The Midnighters. It was a smokey, little dive with animal heads, horns, even whole critters mounted all over the walls and ceiling along with every type of firearm ever invented to kill man or beast. I received $13 and several invitations to the parking lot by an assortment of drunken "ladies" who thought a tall, skinny 13 year-old might be entertaining.
