KENNY ROGERS GONE

KENNY PASSED AWAY LAST NIGHT. I CAN’T HELP BUT THINK OF THE TIMES
AT UH. FRONTIER FIESTA ALWAYS A FUN TIME , LOTS OF ACTIVETY AND BEER
DRINKING. AFTER THE WORK KENNY, MYSELF AND SOMETIMES JOHNNY SMITH
WOULD WALK DOWN TO THE ALGERIN LOUNGE. K & J WOULD SING ALONG WITH
THE JUKE BOX. BOTH HAD GOOD VOICES, KENNY MADE IT , JOHNNY DIDN"T.
WHEN KENNY SANG WITH BOBBY DOYLE , THE PLAYED AT THE HOUSTONAIR
MOTEL AND CLUB ON 59. BACK THEN NO SALE OF ACH BEV UNLESS AT A
PRIVATE CLUB. I SOMEHOW GOT A MEMBERSHIP AND WOULD TAKE DATES
OR CUSTOMERS OUT FOR A DRINK. THAT WAS REAL COOL TO GET SERVED
A DRINK. WHEN KENNY SAW ME OUT IN THE AUDIENCE AT THE BREAK HE
WOULD COME OVER , I WOULD INTRODUCE HIM AND I WOULD BY HIM A
DRINK. WHEN BREAK WAS OVER IT WAS BACK TO WORK . DOINGING THE
YEARS I FOLLOWED HIS SUCCESS. ON HIS FINAL TOUR HE CAME OUT HERE
TO THE INN OF THE MOUNTAIN GODS. HIS VOICE WAS ABOUT HALF OF WHAT
IT WAS AND LIKE ME SOLID GRAY HAIR. KENNY WAS A MAN YOU COULD NOT
HELP BUT LIKE AND LOVE, BUT HE WAS A RASCAL. RIP GOOD BUDDY.

Great memories of the Bobby Doyle Trio & Kenny Rogers at the Ski Club on Richmond!

WHAT WAS THE NAME OF THE LADY THAT SANG WITH THEM. SHE WAS IN
DOWNTOWN CLUB YEARS LATER.

That’s a great story, thank you for sharing your experiences with Kenny Rogers. Not many can say they were there at that point in his career.

So Grayfox knows Marcus Luttrell and Kenny Rogers!
