Thank you, Margie Lemons, for sharing this poster and story from Homer Wills:
“Friday night I was talking to Jonny Mojo about how crowded the Crazy Horse was for their show and I said at least there wasn’t any chicken wire.
Here’s a story:
In ’74 I played the “Chilympiad” with Willie. When we went on stage I saw we were separated from the crowd by floor-to-ceiling chicken wire. I asked Willie what that was about, and he just grinned and said “You’ll see!!”.
As soon as we kicked off “Whiskey River” it started… beer cans and longnecks started hitting the wire. The crowd was whooping and loving the music, and the longer we played the more they threw. At first I instinctively flinched, but I got used to the impacts, and the longnecks that had hit their mark hung like decorations by their necks.
The only problem was that they were never quite empty…. by the end of the set we were soaked and sticky. As we walked off, Bee the bass player looked at me and laughed and said “Welcome to Texas Homer…. You have now been baptised!!”
Four (4) Club Luck tickets just became available for Willie’s 11/17 (Mon) SOLD OUT show at Rudder Auditorium in College Station, TX! Click here to login: http://bit.ly/14j3R1x
“Willie, don’t know if you remember this gig, it was in 2003. But Ronny Spears was one of your opening bands, they are from Frisco Tx. He passed away unexpectedly Monday from a heart attack. He was 51. I believe y’all met on several occasions. Just wanted to let you know ….you were one of his main music legends he loved and inspired him.
Thanks for the good times Willie, keep ‘em coming!”
