the philosophy of Doug Sahm


Wind whippin' down the nape of my neck, sure is cold today, but Id rather be feeling the wind and rain than what i'd be feeling back home!

Texas Tornadoes!  Freddy Fender!!  Flaco Jimenez!!  Wow!! ...sadly Doug died at 58 years and Freddy also died.... frickin' drag man.  ...guess we all die.

What I always liked about doug, not like i ever new him personally, but he was always an upper, compared to most people who, even though the world is a banquet, they starve themselves to death.

Wow... just think if Doug played with Jerry....Garcia, the could of been somebody. The Texas Hillbillies were damn good. Is there anyway to get ahold of Doug ... or is he playing the "Night Pumper" gig...I love that song about modesto....
