I Heard Elvis on 78 records! 45's too.
For those who know what a 78 is?

The first rock tune I loved was Purple People Eater.
My first dance with a real girl was to the Everly Brothers Cathys Clown. 45rpm.

I'm 69 and still playing Steel, Bass and Guitar and singing old Hank Williams and Webb Peirce stuff 3 to 5 nights a week back here in Saigon where I came 51 years ago as an 18 year old army soldier.

Except back then I didn't get to stay in Saigon and never got to play anything but an M-14 with no special tuning. Metal cowboy hat too.
Much better now they stopped shooting at us.
Been back here 17 years now and loving it. Laughing Laughing

74. Been playing, or trying to, less than a year and I'm already wanting an upgrade. Not that it'll help my playing but my picture will look better.

boy oh boy, what a bunch of old farts YOU guys are!,, lol..
I will be 63 myself this June...
ah me,, to be 20 again!!..... Most of us have one foot in the box and the other on a banana peel.

There's like ten 60 or 70 somethings here for every 20-30 something!.. it is what it is, just not enough kids getting into steel because on radio or tv these days there is just not that much steel to hear.. It iS there but you have to dig a little, and most kids don't dig much beyond what is popular .
Most of us that started 30-40 years ago, did ok with our steels if we stuck it out and had some decent ability. I would barely have eaten for many years if it weren't for my pedal steel, thats for sure... bob

Interesting. I barely ate for a few years because of my steel. Laughing

(Just kidding... I've been very blessed with a successful career as a steel player.)
