‘I came across this old photo of me and Moe Bandy from sometime, maybe late 1970s.

Moe and I go way back to our days working the club circuit – but he loves to tell the story of him showing up at one of my shows and asking me where I got that hat.

Moe kinda looks like he doesn’t want his photo taken – or maybe he got thrown off one of his bulls.  You decide.  But seriously, Moe‘s one of the best!’
