March 5: 41th anniversary of Patsy Cline's Death
Patsy Cline was the first female solo artist to be elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame. She was,
and is, a huge star, even though she died at age 30 and her real stardom only launched three years before her death.
Born Virginia Patterson Hensley (the "Cline" is from her first husband, Gerald) on September 8, 1932 in Winchester,
Va., Patsy wanted to be an entertainer all her life. She first performed in public at age four, when she won a
tap dance contest. Soon, though, she switched to singing, and would sing anywhere and everywhere she could.
She had to quit high school in order to clerk in a drug store to help support her family. In fact, when
Roy Acuff offered her a job on his radio show, Patsy decided that she could make more money working in the
drug store, so she went back to Winchester.
Soon, though, she began appearing on shows like the Old Dominion Barn Dance, the Ozark Jubilee, and
The Jimmy Dean Show. Reportedly, Ernest Tubb himself helped her get her first record deal, and there
she met Owen Bradley, the producer who would guide her sound for the rest of her career.
In fact, Owen says his only problem with Patsy was that she "had such a beautifully silky voice [that]
it was hard to get country radio stations to play her records. We did try to rough those records up a
little, so that maybe they'd be considered more country."
Patsy's records became classics. In fact, her Greatest Hits album is still a huge seller.
But once you hear Patsy sing "Walkin' After Midnight," "I Fall To Pieces," or "Crazy," you cannot forget that voice.
The Mar. 5, 1963, plane crash that silenced Patsy also took the lives of Cowboy Copas, Hawkshaw Hawkins and Cline's manager,
accompanist Randy Hughes. The plaque on her grave says, "Death cannot kill what never dies."

MUSIC HISTORY RECORD IN MUSEUM
By Deborag Highland, The (Gallatin) News Examiner -
Sumner County's rich musical heritage is heralded by the county's museum.
"Sumner County is steeped in music history," said Allen Haynes, chairman of the Sumner County Museum Board.
From locals in Portland who make dulcimers to the stars such as the late Johnny Cash, Sumner
has been known for its musical heritage for decades.
Because of those musical roots one portion of the county museum is dedicated to musical artifacts
such as Dot Records of Johnny Maddox recordings to the old neon sign that once hung at Randy's
Records in Gallatin, the largest mail-order record store in the country during its heydey.
"That put Gallatin on the map right there," Haynes said about Dot Records and the record store.
Below the neon sign is an old photo of Dr. Humphrey Bate and the Possum Hunters of Castalian Springs, who
were early stars of the Grand Ole Opry.
Bate's daughter, Alcyon Bate, was the first female singer to perform at the Opry.
"Sumner County has a lot of connections with the Grand Ole Opry and country music," Haynes said.
"It's an important part of history and especially local history."
BOBBY VINTON COLLAPSES ON STAGE.
Tues., Feb. 24, 2004 - Singer Bobby Vinton collapsed during a performance Sunday night in central
Pennsylvania, but his condition apparently improved backstage and he refused hospitalization, officials said.
Vinton, 68, had been performing at the American Music Theatre for about an hour when he sat down beside
the piano player and dropped his head toward the keys.
"The piano player caught him, and Bobby said the show was over for the night," said audience
member Don Eves, who said Vinton had been heavily perspiring.
Vinton, a native of the Pittsburgh suburb of Canonsburg, recovered backstage and later joined his
family at a nearby hotel, the Intelligencer Journal of Lancaster reported.
Jim Herr, a supervisor with Lancaster County Communications, confirmed Monday
that an ambulance service had been called. He didn't know details of the singer's
condition, but said no one was transported for treatment.
Vinton's hits include "Roses Are Red (My Love)," "Blue Velvet" and "Mr. Lonely."

Little Richard Honors Late Musician
Little Richard attended funeral services for a Georgia musician who helped him get started in the
recording industry and once supplied him with a shirt and a car for a performance at the Apollo Theatre.
Melvin C. "Percy" Welch offered Little Richard a place in his band in 1952.
"I didn't have clothes," Little Richard recalled Saturday at Welch's funeral in Macon. "My mama had 12 kids.
My daddy was a bootlegger, and the boot was empty that day." Welch, 75, died Feb. 8 of kidney failure.
Welch also coached Otis Redding and worked with Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Gladys Knight and The
Drifters, according to friends.
Welch remained with family in Macon rather than seek fame in Hollywood. "He never did get what
he should have gotten as far as his music is concerned," Little Richard said.

fulfilled this dream to me. And me with Elvis in oil painting
perpetuates. And even if you have this dream, then write me and I
paint you with Elvis in the float, which you would like.
Naturally I am pleased also always about feedback, completely

CHUCK BERRY NEWS for 2003.
MEMBER OF ROCKIN' REBELS ("WILD WEEKEND")
A lesser known musician, but one that scored a big hit is Paul Balon. He with the Kipler Twins, Jim and Mickey,
and Tom Gorman started the band the "Rebels." They asked Buffalo DJ Tom Shannon and his partner Phil Todaro
to listen to their version of Shanon's vocal radio theme song. As quick as you could, Tom and Phil had the
kids in the studio. Shannon and Todaro's Mar Lee Records released "Wild Weekend" and it became a regional
hit. Bernie Bennick heard the single played years later and contacted Shannon for the masters.
That was all it took. Paul Balon created the throbbing bass line for Wild Weekend. 1962 was a good
year for the band and Swan Records, with appearances on American Bandstand and tours. Dick Clark
objected to the Rebels name as his "client" was Duane Eddy And The Rebels. The kids became the "Buffalo
Rebels" and later the "Rockin' Rebels."
Balon played in local Buffalo bands after the group broke up. (The Jesters, another local band
became the Rebels, and most later Swan releases were done by them, with an occasional side
recorded by Kathy Lynn & The Playboys.The Jesters photo appears on the sheet music.)
(Rocking Crickets was done by the Hot Toddy's, released first on Tom and Phils Shan Todd label.)
Paul had heart disease and at age 61 he passed away on December 17, 2003. Done too soon!

Donnie drove into the back of a truck loaded with pigs at 85-mph and the truck dragged his car quite a ways
until they stopped. His left lung isn't working and some ribs are crushed. He's in a Vegas hospital and is
able to speak. I'm sure that he'd appreciate your prayers.
Johnny Faire/Donnie Brooks:
Donnie Brooks (real name John Faircloth) with his early recordings (as Johnny Faire, Dick Bush and
Johnny Jordan) are certainly top grade material.
Before his '60 million seller "Mission Bell" and other hits for Californian Era and Reprise labels,
Johnny used to perform at juke joints with people like Johnny & Dorsey Burnette, record wild novelty
rock'n'roll singles such as "Bertha Lou", "Fell For Your Line", "Sway And Move With The Beat" and "Hollywood
Party", tour with Gene Vincent and Bobby Vee & The Ventures. There were times
when Donnie was known as "King Of The Twist" at Ciro's on The Sunset Strip, and he also appeared in a few
1960s movies including "The Swingin' Set", "Swinging Summer", "Get Yourself A College Girl"
and "The Love-Ins", where he managed to make a scene together with Raquel Welch herself!

PRESLEY RELATIVE FOUND DEAD IN PRISON.
Parchman, Miss. 12/16/03 -- A relative of Elvis Presley, imprisoned for a drug-related accident that
killed a woman, was found dead in his cell Tuesday, an apparent suicide, authorities said.
Mississippi Department of Corrections officials said Patrick Presley, 31, was found hanging in his cell
shortly after midnight. Officials said security officers had observed Presley in his cell during a
security check less than a half-hour earlier. Presley's father was Lee County Sheriff Harold Ray
Presley, who was killed in a shootout during a manhunt in 2001.
The younger Presley was convicted in March of being under the influence of drugs when his vehicle
was involved in a collision that killed Melissa White, 37, in July 2002. Tests showed Presley had
methamphetamine in his system. He was sentenced to life in prison under Mississippi's "depraved heart"
murder statute, which applies to deaths caused by reckless conduct. The late sheriff's father was
the brother of Elvis Presley's grandfather, making them first cousins once removed. After he became
sheriff in 1993, Harold Presley received calls from Elvis fans and covered a wall of his office
with Elvis pictures and posters. Officials said that while there had been no specific threats against
the younger Presley, he was given extra protection in prison because of his father's office.
