RayWylie Hubbard and RD Foster

 

RAY WYLIE HUBBARD. In 1979 or there about, I got a phone call from Ray Wylie. He had just bought a bus, a well-used GMC 4106, that had been used as a tourist bus in the Boston area. Ray knew I had truck-driving experience, so he asked me if I could teach him how to drive it. I did, and over the next 20 years I traveled over a million miles in tour buses. I drove for a lot of different bands, and never once did I apply for a job, they always called me. I didn’t really want to drive all that much, but being a struggling musician myself, when the money was too good to turn down…

Dizzy, Al, Maynard

I traveled with Jazz Legend, MAYNARD FERGUSON, one of the finest trumpet players in the world, and his band from 1987 - '91. I have hundreds of pictures from that time and will be posting them for some time to come. The Boss, as everyone who worked for Maynard called him, was born May 4, 1928 and passed away 23 August, 2006. He started touring as a child, and did so until his death. Rest in peace, my friend.
