Anybody ever here of Frankie Morrell? He was from Mississippi and somehow ended up Charlotte working as a mechanic in the 70's. He died in the mid 80's. He told me he was Don Helms cousin, and that Don had taught him how to play. Told me he'd played with Jones, Slim Whitman among others. He had a bunch of old pics to back this up and never gave me any reason to doubt his story. He had an old blonde S10 that operated with cables that had F R A N K I E across the front of it. He wasn't a very big name at all as I've not been able to find a thing on him anywhere. I was just curious.
