August 9, 2019
"Well, I am bringing up issues of concern but at the same time, I'm being hired to implement what it is they want to do." So, I said to them, "I don't know how you're gonna get a $10.00 cover charge or how six toilets are gonna take care of 2,000 people on a Saturday night, I've alerted them to my concerns. Now it's my job to figure out how to make it work." Now, Phillipe Starck's answer was, "This will be no problem. The men will use the ladies, the ladies will use the men's" and that's exactly what happened.

DOWDY FERRY ROAD, THE JOHN FORD COLEY STORY

By

July 9, 2019
Back when we were kids, we would to go down to Dowdy Ferry Road years ago with our pistols. And we would shoot at the cottonmouths. We probably killed half the cottonmouth population over on Dowdy Ferry. Dan was always looking for something that’s a little bit more unique. And so, that was one. It was like 'Dowdy Ferry Road' was short, and every other song we had was like, “I’d Really Love to See You Tonight,” “Nights Are Forever Without You,” “We Don’t Ever Have to Say Goodbye” it was like, geez, let’s just pick something that’s three words.

JOURNEY TO TYME, THE MARK LEE STORY

By

July 7, 2019
My mother and dad went to some party at the Lamplighter Motel. Kenny and his band were playing poolside and Mom got a business card and that’s how it got back to me. I put it in my pocket and kind of forgot about it. I had found myself in a position of booking or helping to book a nightclub, not a nightclub in the regular sense of the word, but they had these apartment clubs back in those days. And there was an apartment complex over in Northwest Highway, off Webb Chapel. I think it is called La Fontana. A friend of mine, an older friend that worked for my father had been placed in charge of promoting and building this club up at the La Fontana Apartments, he took me along, and he said 'What do you think will work here?'. And I immediately said, 'a band'. Now my Mom had just given this card the night before while we were watching TV so I reached in my wallet and pulled out Kenny’s card and the rest is history.
