Sonofabitch, I just heard Roy Head died. As if 2020 just had to squeeze every last cool thing out of being on this planet. This year SUCKS! Roy was a great Gulf Coast rocker, starting with the great rockabilly pounder "One More Time" on TNT Records in the late 50's, and of course his huge, eternal hit "Treat Her Right," and a dozen or so other truly great tunes. In later years he cut some fine country records, as well. Roy was WILD, man, one of those guys that was more a life force of unstoppable manic energy than mere mortal. I got to back him up ten times or thereabouts at the old Ponderosa Stomp festivals, and these are some of my favorite memories. The first time at the Stomp, though, was the best. It was at the old Rock 'n' Bowl location, and the place was PACKED to the GILLS. Roy taught me the rules of being a great soul music entertainer: 1. Show up late 2. When you do show up, give it 110% 3. Don't play too long a show 4. Piss excellence (his microphone tossing technique, dancing, interacting with the crowd, making eyes at the ladies was second to none) 5. Make a memorable exit (Roy left the show doing "The Alligator" on the floor through the audience, who parted like the Red Sea to allow him to make his exit) 6. Don't do an encore. He was FLIPPIN' GREAT. I loved that crazy sonofagun. I don't think there's any footage of that first show we did, but here's one from the Stomp. Man, a world without Roy Head is a world hardly worth living in. The excitement meter just went down ten notches, I doubt it'll ever ratchet up that high ever again. RIP Roy Head....
