“The picture of Ben and Willie was taken by me last summer in Houston as Willie came off the stage and was getting on his bus.  It’s my favorite picture of Ben I have ever seen.

Ben Dorcy has worked in the business since 1950 and continues working today.  Ben has worked with John Wayne, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Patsy Cline, Buck Owens, Hank Thompson, Ray Price among hundreds of others.”

Karl Kuenning from has produced a tribute video honoring his friend Ben Dorcy, the World’s Oldest Roadie.    He told me that he does not plan on selling the dvd at this time, but would consider it if there were an interest, with the proceeds going to benefit Ben.  If anyone is interested in a copy, please e-mail me and I will get you in touch with Karl.

Karl also created a website honoring Ben Dorcy,  at
There are lots of great pictures at the site, and contact information for Ben.
