We were playing at a Christmas festival Friday night, doing mostly Christmas songs. We also did some of our regular play-list, including some Jimmie Rodgers stuff. A very, very old lady came-up afterward, and said that "....her older sister had dated Jimmie Rodgers." It turned-out that it was THE Jimmie Rodgers. The lady was 100 years old.

That's one thing I love about playing and singing in retirement homes. I meet folks who've played with some great musical folks of yesteryear. Occasionally, you even run into one of the old greats there, themselves.

Thanks for the story.

I think that he is very dated now. Not irrelevant, but dated.

Great story Wilco.

I played at an old folks Home about six years ago, and this little ol' guy comes up to me and says "Where's yer accordion"? "Nope" says I, "I play guitar and banjo". "So your mother didn't teach you accordion eh"? He says.

He then told me that he'd been in one of my late mother's bands OVER 50 years ago! He had recognized my last name, and had come down to the lounge to see if "Dotty's kid" was any good! He said my timing was good, listened to a couple of songs, and then drifted off to sleep in his chair!

Cheers

Rick

Rick that is amazing it just goes to show how small this world really is and that old timer regardless where they may be located can furnish some interesting facts of our past Louie Roy

Giok, we should be so 'dated'. There are seminal people all along the line- Jimmie Rodgers is one of them.

You met she, who probably met, my uncle, who was Jimmie Rodger's father.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

Don't really, make he, she, or me any more or less significant...nor you... for that matter.

Didn't never think it was significant enough to post the 10 most unknown things thread

Three thousand miles from my "home" state, and a good fifteen years after my father had died, I met a lively white-haired editor/publisher who asked me, on an off chance (hearing my last name) if I was any relation to my Dad. Turned out they'd worked together for a number of years back in the City, when younger, and he had very positive memories of my father from that time, thirty years earlier. I don't mind telling you it knocked my wee socks right off!!

"James Charles Rodgers, the father of country music, was born near Meridian, Miss. on Sept. 8, 1897, the son of a railroad man. "

THAT Jimmie Rodgers?...somehow the dates seem ...ummm...a mite out of alignment...

Bill D, if gargoyle is 106 years old, his uncle would, if alive, be 130 years of age, and could easily have sired Jimmie Rodgers who was born in 1897. Assuming the necessary proximity, of course. :)

Nah, Garg's talking about this Jimmie Rodgers the twee fifties 'folk' rocker --- remember 'Kisses Sweeter Than Wine' and 'English Country Garden'? Are you surprised Gargoyle has such a bitter and twisted attitude towards the music that scarred him so badly, having been forced as a child to listen to songs like that played by his over-achieving cousin?
