I would add Los Lonely Boys from San Angelo (if no one has already).

Folks, since there is a general Texas Music Thread, I would like to keep this one to musicians within 150 miles of Lubbock. Here's a fellow who had dealings with Buddy Holly but was born at Big Spring.

Carl Bunch (November 24, 1939 – March 26, 2011) was born at Big Spring, Texas. Bunch was invited to join Buddy Holly on the fatal "Winter Dance Party" tour in 1959 but suffered frostbite when the bus broke down in a snowstorm. This placed him in a hospital and he avoided the ill-fated flight that killed Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper. Bunch eventually played for the Bob Osburn band, Hank Williams, Jr. and Roy Orbison but left the music industry and became a pastor.

Sorry I couldn't find any of his music.

I believe Harold "Hal" Goodson was originally from Childress, Texas but he lived at Lubbock and is said to have attended school with Buddy Holly. Goodson passed away at Midland in 2000.

Yeah, I love their music. And they've been cancelling concerts. Henry (front man and lead guitar) fell off a stage into an orchestra pit at a concert in California, and instead of waiting for the paramedics, they picked him up immediately and carried him off. I don't know for a fact that this is the reason his back is so damaged he can't play, but it certainly wasn't wise.

As I'm sure you know, they played Lubbock not too long ago (I was too ill to attend), and right afterwards, Kessler in Dallas. At the Dallas concert they played sitting down, which they never do except for intimate acoustic performances, so I think Henry was hurting then.

These guys are great; I hope Henry is okay, but they've had to cancel more concerts recently.

Ouch! I know about back injuries. I have a tree trimming fall in the past few years that I plan to live the rest of my life with. However, to have such an injury so young as LLB is sad.

Yeah, I think Henry's in his mid-30's, and he and Jo-Jo (the bass player) have between them I think four children. So it's serious. They've worked so hard, and to have these problems is not good.
