12790Oak Ridge Boys, Jack Starr, Rossyln Mountain Boys articles
- Jul 31, 2009Greetings,
In the latest issue of Perfect Sound Forever <http://www.perfectsoundforever.com>, you'll find (among other things):
OAK RIDGE BOYS
Gospel, country hits & still alive
"... the last remaining country quartet, The Oak Ridge Boys, continue their longstanding tradition of harmony. Since their inception in 1945 as The Georgia Clodhoppers to the present line-up beginning in 1972, Duane Allen, lead; Joe Bonsall, tenor; William Lee Golden, baritone; Richard Sterban, bass along with multi-talented band members The Oaks have kept the musical flame burning."
ROSSYLN MOUNTAIN BOYS
Still looking for Honky Tonk Heaven
"Joe Triplett is, by all accounts, exceedingly modest, which goes some distance to explain why today, only dedicated fans still remember the Rosslyn Mountain Boys. These folks tend to agree that the band should have been known and loved from California to the New York islands, rather than from Gaithersburg, Maryland, to Alexandria, Virginia."
JACK STARR & RON HAYDOCK
Of rockabilly & B-movie obscurity
"Jack Starr and Ron Haydock, speak for everyone who has puts something, anything down fearlessly to posterity, hoping that someone will find it and bring them some immortality, someday. They also speak for those who had no time for that kind of sh-t, and instead focused on getting out as much juice while it lasted."
We're always looking for good writers and/or ideas so let us know if you have anything to share.
See you online,
