I remember when you and I both wrote for the UP at Lamar. That was before you and Jesse Dayton were a couple. The best music from SETX came from John Evans. At least you were right about Noble Things. You took a huge on chance on Johnny Winter as Best Blues Artist. And the morons at ctheds do nothing but refer to Rick Danna as Rick Dana and confuse the living shit out of Kinky Friedman.
