I grew up with Roger Miller, but I didn't notice him at the time. It was David P. Smith,or maybe Ford Pier, or maybe the two of them who brought him back to my attention, and showed me that he was more than just the novelty songs that I remembered. A great song-writer, a hilarious personality, and a crazy vocal range. When David demonstrated to me that I could sing "Lock, Stock, and Teardrops" by fudging the super high part that I can't simulate, I shed a tear. Wow! I still don't feel that I do the song justice, but who cares. When are we going to have that Roger Miller tribute night?
To be part of a show at Trounce Alley Gallery in March!
