He was chewing this guy out and he looked behind him and there I was and so he just laughed like he was joking. Because Bill Graham was very particular about keeping the entertainers happy. He didn't want them to be upset about nothing.
And the other highlights would be the Champagne Jams that we did at Georgia Tech. I knew most everybody there. Van Halen, Aerosmith and Journey were also on that bill. The picture was taken there at Texxas Jam. I remember Van Halen. He was the only one I associated with really and he was a nice guy. Good drummer. Did Atlanta Rhythm Section ever indulge in any of hotel room trashing or throwing TVs out windows mischief many '70s bands did?
What's your relationship with Barry Bailey like these days? About every week or two we'll talk. Talk on the phone and text. Yeah, I've seen that. Did you hang out with Ronnie Van Zant much? Oh yeah, we played a lot of shows with Skynyrd. I remember one time everybody got on the plane and the first thing the flight attendants did was throw us all bottles of whiskey because Ronnie Van Zant went up there and told them. We were going from Mobile to I think Dallas or somewhere.
And then Leon Wilkeson, Skynyrd bassist sat in the middle seat next to me and his leg was bleeding. One time after a show we were playing poker, and we were playing some big money poker and Ronnie Van Zant was losing his ass.
Uh oh. I hope he felt bad about doing that to me, because Robert, our drummer then, LP, was the one cheating. In addition to Skynyrd, who were some other '70s bands from The South you liked? Allman Brothers, I like them good. Gregg Allman and I were very good friends.
He lived with me for a while. Leon Wilkeson, from Skynyrd stayed with me for a while too. In our previous interview you told me some good Gregg Allman stories. Gregg, that guy was a little crazy and wild but that was just the way he was. I liked. ZZ Top, loved the hell out of them, we did tours with them, we even had leather outfits made. I would sayThe first tour we did with them we had those made up, at that period of time bands were really dressing up. Now it's just T-shirt and jeans.
The 25 greatest Southern rock album covers. Ever have any eventful meeting with some of the big rock stars back then? And we were sitting there, about to do the tour with Roy Orbison, and looked over there and saw Paul McCartney. His charisma was incredible. You saw him you knew there was a star in there. Lennon was there with him.
McCartney was nice. We walked over there and said, "What do Album) say to somebody like you? Do you miss playing shows yet? Yeah, I sure do. It was painful and Rodney could tell I was in pain so he kind of swayed me to go ahead and retire.
What song are you going to miss playing live with ARS the most? Probably "So Into You. People still listen to "So Into You" all these decades later and I think they will for decades to come. What's it like to leave a mark like that with music you made? That is the ultimate goal for a musician, a recording musician. It feels good. I mean, "So Into You" was released I think in, somewhere in there and it still gets a lot of airplay. It gets as much airplay as it used to get when it was new - or more.
What was your cowriting process like with Buddy Buie? We'd go down to Eufaula. Buddy had a trailer that was made into a cabin on the lake and sometimes we would come with new things, sometimes things we'd had on our minds. We'd just kind of sit there, I'd play some things on the piano and he'd say, "Hey I liked that, man! Play that some more," or stuff like that.
The rest were at Lake Eufaula, the ones I LP in. Who's a contemporary artist you'd like LP hear cover "So Into You"? Any other recent artists you like? I love Taylor Swift's writing.
