Those were the days. I knew Johnny and Shelby. I went to school with Shelby's son, who was a couple of years younger than me, and was at their home a few times. Miss Bess' nephew is my friend and her brother, ***, was my father's best friend. I grew up just north of "The Line".
I went to all those clubs.....Johnny's, Todd's, Club 13, Circle E, 43 Club and Tony's all come to mind. I remember we had fun with a couple of bands, Jackson Highway and Cashmere, we first met at the clubs.
I seem to recall hearing people talk about Johnny and bank robbery but haven't thought about that for years.
Good ol' days indeed.
