Elvis Presley on the 70s rock music messy hair and blue party shirt Ed Sullivan Show yet, so I was still brand new to the beautiful chaos the music could bring. Head and his band the Traits lived near Wimberley, and they had a regular gig that summer playing around the swimming pool. The Traits were all first-class musicians, but Head was on another planet entirely.
He would dance his way from a 70s rock music messy hair and blue party shirt behind the band’s amps, start singing like a man who was on fire, do several splits and somersaults, and then throw the microphone around like it was a boomerang. I stood mesmerized five feet in front of the band and knew in a heartbeat this was the only life for me, no matter what I had to do to live it. And that’s when it all started: my 65-year obsession with music.
