Now there was a man that could yodel. I just don't understand how Austin can be kept weird when all of the weirdos keep leaving us. I used to love to see Don Walser play. And he played gigs well after he could get around without a lot of help from his wife. That is a true musician. Playing for the love of the music even when it was obviously very difficult to even get to the show. Occasionally, he would autograph photos. I still have the one he gave to me. It reads: "To __________. Smile! The sunshine is good for your teeth! Love, Don Walser" The last time I saw him play was at a friend's wedding reception a few years ago. I'm glad I went to say howdy and to tell him how much I loved his music and that I still had the photo he signed for me. One of the band members pulled me aside and told me that he had seen him sign a lot of photos, but none of them ever had that message. That just makes it more special. Don, you were a bad ass!
