Thanks Herb for that, Stubb was a great friend to many musicians in Lubbock, Stevie Ray was always there and stayed with Stubb. Same with Jessie Taylor, Ely and Terry Allen. His joint in Lubbock looks small now, but seemed big back in the day. I was there one night with Jessie and I got to shoot pool in the back room and I remember Stubb introducing me to Terry Allen and I didn't know him at the time, wish I knew then what I know now.

Stubb fed any traveling muscians stopping by and playing at his famous Sunday night jams. I was to stupid at the time to not know about them or go to them, wish we had the net back then.

I still use Stubb's sauces and marinates on all my BBQ!

Some very nice Dobro by Lloyd on Death of the Last Stripper. All the musicians are very fine. Lots of taste going on.

I particularly like (My ego ain't) My Amigo (anymore).

And Amarillo Highway, what a band, everybody was scaring everybody!

I know this is a pedal steel forum but... Jesse Taylor... what a guitar player! He and Lloyd could make it fly!
I saw the Joe Ely Band in London, approx 1981? Almost the best gig I ever saw, surpassed only by Doug Sahm. Oooeee!!!!

Lucky man. I presume after Ely, the Clash came on stage?

I'm a high straight in Plainview
Side bet in Idalou
And a fresh deck in New Deal
Yeah, some call me high hand
And some call me low hand
But, I'm holding what I am, the wheel
The opening verse from Amarillo Highway . It wasn't until I was looking at a map of Lubbuck that I realised that they were all place names from around Lubbuck . Song sorta made a but more sense after that !

Yes, it helps to know the score.
There are many funny names in Pennsylvania, but nothing beats Texas. (Said like a true T-sip.)
From Ding Dong to Loco, Uncertain and Nameless; I'm sure Mr. Allen has considered the possibilities. Of the things I don't miss, like the wind, the flatland leaves something,
echoing out there in my mind on a lonely, straight highway, probably on its way to Earth... just down the road from Lubbock, the only hole above ground,
where the wind don't blow it sucks.... I'm happy in Intercourse.

You got that right. As names go, Old Dime Box is pretty good. So is Cut and Shoot.
