Re: Hey Colonels!
I became a Ky Colonel in 1973. Gov. Wendell Ford signed my proclamation!
THE KENTUCKY COLONELS https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kentucky_Colonels_
Clarence White - guitar
Roland White: mandolin
Billy Ray Latham - banjo
Roger Bush -bass
Rare tape of Clarence White and Tony Rice, 1973
Max, I was able to recommend almost everyone from Dooleys and all were commissioned by the sitting governor of Ky
Melanie, Gene Kelly, Bob Everson, Bob, George, Roger, there were so many can't remember.
I do remember when The Colonels booked The KT and the Diamonds at the Kentucky Colonels Bar-B-Que.. that was a blast and a half.Im so glad you were there too.
Larry made all members of the Trio colonels.
I don't know who else.
About a year after Nick retired the 2nd time, Larry got the Colonels to bring the Trio to their BBQ the day after the Derby.
Interestingly, the Diamonds were there too, I assume Jerry was there too.
Since this was an outdoor event, I took a lot of pics.....don't know where they are now.
What was most interesting was that people danced when Bob did S&S..that had to be a first.
