Billy Cox from the Charlie Daniels Band & the Jimi Hendrix Band Of Gypsies.
Location: Exit In / Nashville TN - Comments by Pat Adams
I guess Billy Cox would qualify as southern rock, since he did play with the
Charlie Daniels Band, early on. He is most known, for being in the Jimi Hendrix
Band Of Gypsies in the 1960's, after Hendrix put together a band to play at
Woodstock, and called upon his old army buddy (and musician friend), Billy Cox

Picture & Comments by Pat Adams from the Tennessee Concerts website
This picture was of Ed King with Billy Ray Cyrus at Fan Fair in 2006 performing Sweet
Home Alabama. Ed King was with Lynyrd Skynyrd in the 1970's before leaving the
band. He later, re-joined in a 1990's version of the band.

as well.

Paul Riddle in the 1970's. Drummer for The Marshall Tucker Band
Paul is one of my best drummer cronies in the biz. Charlie Daniels and I would play
the last two songs with Tucker everynight. One encore would always be
The Thrill is Gone by BB King. In 2007, Paul & Jerry Eubanks have a band
called Sevenmoore in Spartanburg SC. Picture & comments by Gary Allen (ex-CDB).
The late Toy Caldwell from the Marshall Tucker Band & Charlie Daniels
Also taken on the same tour with the Marshall Tucker Band & the C.D.B.

new road stories. Paul Hornsby was on board as well, (producer of CDB
"Fire On The Mountain" album as well as The MTB, and played
piano on the Marshall Tucker records). Picture by Gary Allen (ex-CDB).

Another shot from the Municipal Auditorium of The Allmans without Duane.
