PostSubject: Singing Cowboys   Sun Mar 01, 2009 6:19 pm

Very Happy Hi Buckaroos...I've noticed that most of us are "old" enough to remember the era of the singing cowboys and saturday matinee westerns....come on, guys admit it boomers rule bounce Basketball cheers

Music, (especially campfire cowboy and western swing ) have been an intergal part of my life and I'd like to get a thread going regarding the songsters of the western saga.....tell us who you're favorite singing cowboy was or maybe your favorite saturday matinee idol..he how 'bout your favorite TV gunslinger???

Personally, I love cowboy music as was fashoined by groups like the Sons of the Pioneers and kept alive by fellas like Riders in the Sky and Michael Martin Murphy...I grew up listening to western swing and one of my grade school buddies' dad (Lou Walker) played lead guitar for several years with Bob Wills and the Texas PLayboys and I got to sit in one or two impromptu jams at their house....I can't get enough of Ray Benson and Asleep at the Wheel and my hometown homie Alvin Crow and the Pleasant Valley boys.....Gene, Roy and Hoppy were childhood idols who really loved kids like me...how lucky could a kid get??

How 'bout you???

Happy trails
Dave

Did I hear John Wayne sing in an old B and W oater? before he cultivated the pigeon-toed swagger?!!

Laurel and Hardy did a good number 'The trail of the Lonesome Pine' in ? Way Out West?...think it hit the charts again not so long ago in UK.

Also how about Dino , Colorado and the old coot (Stumpy) in Rio Bravo? pretty good!!!!


give me The Sons of the Pioneers every time....

Paul, I remember that John Wayne movie too but as I recall the singer was a stand in for the Duke who couldn't carry a tune in a tin bucket.
