does sound like it was fun

I played alot of shows on the Strip in Hollywood and other circuits around the country and shared a bill or two at divey bars and seedy clubs with bands that went on to become MTV darlings and millionaires in the 80's. The biggest thrill I ever had was in Cedar Falls, Iowa. 1989 . I was working for Tesla and thier drummer got very ill and I played the rest of the show for him, about 7 tunes.

If I heard the story correctly, I think Lefty opened up for Jimmy Buffet at a big shed show a few years back.

I once - once for sure, quite possibly twice - sat in on a "song circle" (kind of a folky jam session) with a young banjo prodigy who would later go on to play with Leftover Salmon (Noam Pikelny).

At the same venue (Old Town School of Folk Music), our little combo shared the stage with A LOT of big names on the Midwestern folk circuit. Mark Dvorak is probably the biggest name among them - http://www.markdvorak.com/. Another guy, I forget his name, was one of the cast members of "Woody Guthrie's American Song" for a while, so I guess that was a pretty big deal, too.

Allman Joys, B. J. Thomas, Spencer Davis, Mitch Rider, The Candymen, Clearance Carter, Sir Douglas Quintet (when they left town so did our PA), and the Hour Glass. Probably a few that I'm forgetting. Glory days for sure.

Bill, you put us all to shame And now you take some kick a$$ pictures for all of us to enjoy

I dare post anything after your list, but hey, I did sing with the Tony Tyler Trance, Wet Willie (two great bands!), Bluedad and Big Dave's jam band, and a few other bands no one has ever heard of.

Sounds like Bill has been around the barn a few times on the right horse. Lets hope he makes it to the Wanee Campsite jams and shows us what he can do.

For me, I'd have to say Johnny Winter on two different occasions. That same band also opened for Lonnie Mack a few times.

More recently either Meryl Saunders or The David Nelson Band.

Instead of riding that horse, most nights I felt like I was that horse. Before I my "high school" band broke-up for college in August of 1968 we were working six nights a week at the Martinique in Daytona, and doing a Sunday afternoon Jam at the Cypress Tavern, across town. We played over 200 dates that year up to August, while we were seniors in high school, trying to graduate. Some nights when we would play a slow blues, or something like "Summertime" I would actually fall asleep on the drums. We were all horses back then.

I've played with some really big names...from right here on this forum.

As far as guitarists, there's Lefty Collins, Tony Tyler, John Howard, Jon May, Barry Zion, Brent Sibley, just to name a few. But the biggest name of them all is a man who has shared the stage with the Allman Brothers and many of the aforementioned guitarists. His name is Bill Ector.

if by 'sharing the stage' you could mean being near the stage but not out front, then i'll say The ABB, the DTB, and THE MULE.

other than that i have to go with Big Dave, Hai, and skydogsys at JFD2006. of all the songs i know by the ABB, they chose the one that i dont know as well as most everyone else.....Ramblin Man good stuff though!

That time I let you hold my jock strap and carry my guitar and in light of SPDBs claim that you couldn't even carry his jockstrap let alone carry his guitar, just wondering if that qualified as a sloppy second highlight for you?

Seriously though, playing with the jammers and the SkyDogs at the JFD was a true highlight for me.

SkyDogSys, I am on my way to meet Bluedad at a new music store here in town so I can get my guitar stand I left at JFD back (thanks again Buppalo!) I'll be sure to pass along the warm fuzzies.
