BobWillsHappy Birthday Bob Wills …

I could not imagine a world where Bob Wills did not exist.

Born this day in 1905 and forming The Texas Playboys in the mid-1930s

The band led by Wills had a very original and influential effect of music of the time and even the coming era of Swing Music.

I have been told by Texans that the greatest honor after being born in Texas, is to be able to die in Texas.

His dad was a state-wide fiddle champion. He is even ion the Rock-N-Roll Hall Of Fame.

You must hear his brand of American Music in order to understand all music which in one form or another has a ‘lil bit of Bob in there somewhere
