    Well I’m sure you’ve heard of the passing of Charlie Daniels. I was a big fan of his. Some great music that spanned decades. Although considered a country act The Charlie Daniels band rose to fame in the 70’s Southern Rock era along with bands like Lynard Skynard, Marshal Tucker Band & many others. One of his songs I always liked that didn’t get a lot of air time was a Vietnam veterans song Still in Saigon. Edgy rock song for sure. If you’ve never heard it give it a listen with this link.

    Played Uneasy Rider for a coworker yesterday. I think he was a little shocked.

    Thanks for sharing that.
    My Dad did two tours over there.
    I wonder sometimes about the demons he faced.
