1965, I was 16, Drummer in a band called the Nobles. Roky Erikson's little brother was our singer, for our one and only gig with him. We all gathered in the bathroom to watch him "toke" a "joint". I was fascinated, tho it was 6 years later 'til I had the opportunity myself. (I had gone for the money and joined a real country-western band, so i always had a lot to drink, even 'tho i was underage.) The next few years I got to share the stage with a few legendary Texas country-western singers and musicians. I got to play the Broken Spoke and the now-defunct Skyline Club, venue for almost all of the country stars of that era. The Skyline Club is now a CVS pharmacy. The Spoke is still hummin' tho.
