I am just a soul who's intentions are good! Look for the best in ever one. Will give You the shirt off my back BUT You will not take one of the extra buttons! Each of us has a talent that makes us special! Most kids, animals and, i get along great they both think i am one of them. Have not been around the world BUT have been to several of it's big city's. Still live in the house i was born in, that Grand Paw built in 1938. Being from a small town/county i have known many of my friends {and their parents} most of my life. One of those who was a star the first time he went to town. Favorite movie of all time is 1959 version of "THE DAY EARTH STOOD STILL" Next is "Love Story" Love to cook hate to clean. I know Jesus has his hand on me! My sports teams are The Saint Louis Cardinals {my Dad told me i was conceived listening to Cards baseball on a Delco car radio?}, Tennessee Vols, Whom ever the Manning boy are playing for. My life long hobby is playing recording studio. From erecting the building, to song writing. Installed and, serviced equipment in some of the biggest, working with two of the best studio builders in the world and several live touring sound companies. Been in the studio and, done live shows with the top names stars in the music business. Can Not sing or play any instrument. But was told by an eight time Grammy winner that my abilities with a soldering iron made me as talented as any one to pass through the doors of 1700 Popular, Memphis TN. Jerry Lawyer's wrestling manger dubbed me the "King of the Soldering Gun" Broke ground on my dream recording studio last fall and, as soon as it gets warm will be back on it! Studios visions is to start recording the local talent. Then as we get our feet under us start pulling in the has bins wanting to be back agains passing by of I-40. Give them a bed, breakfast, record music environment. In a laid back watch the wind blow, grass grow setting. Let them go down to the cement catfish hole and catch dinner, ride the creek bank to see a fox, or deer on an ATV or one of the cousins horses, or maw my fields on an old 8N Ford tractor. Make there old 50s Fender amp sound like brand new. Then when they have made their come back tacking some locals along with them, we fly over to London or Paris for a couple of weeks to catch a few of there shows. Another side of my play life restoring radios in Classic Cars brings me into contact with folks from all walks of life and, all over the world. Hey You got to do something to pay the bills why not enjoy it? Just 'PLEASE!' do not say the {W} word! Most days i am playing before the Sun comes up go for as long as i can, get some R&R then play some more! Love the Allman Brothers, Bobbie Whitlock, Skynyrd, Josh Turner, Thunder Birds, BB, Lou Rawls. All music but rap! & opera! Unless of course it is the Grand Old One! I like to be around entertainers because they never let one get board. Inspired at least one number one hit! My goals in life yet unfulfilled are: Taking over Nashville with hit songs form this West Tennessee cottonfield. Shutting down HollyWood cause it is to far to drive. Also worked with some top names in the film, entertainment industry. I find it hard to believe myself how this dumb ass county boy has been able to do what i have! Not to mention being a invited member to the EXXXXXXPPC club. \\___|W|T|M|S|___///----)---)--) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
