This is the guy I've been trying to find for years. He was a friend of my wife and I, my first tour to Germany 1963-1966. He play steel in the band I worked with. Just was putting pedals on it, and I could tell some great stories on him. The last time I seen him was my second tour to Germany in 1972-1975. His cousin and us were very good friends (Teddy Schell) played bass. There was a friend that played drums also in the Drifters Caravan with him, Rocky. They played for Dave Dudley for 19 years. Thanks so much for posting this.
