My Years With Bob Wills

by Al Stricklin and Jon McConal

ISBN: 1-57168-119-1
Softcover, 196 pages 6"x9" and illustrations

The late Bob Wills, along with his Texas Playboy band, is fast becoming a legend in country and western music history. Al Stricklin, Bob’s longtime piano player, in his My Years With Bob Wills, tells the down–to–earth story of Wills, the "King of Western Swing," and his band, from their heyday in the 1930s and 1940s to his tragic death in 1975. The road Bob and his musicians traveled from their first job at a Fort Worth radio station to the sentimental day in 1971 when the Playboys performed together for one of the last times, is described in fascinating detail –– and the trip for the reader is guaranteed to be as exciting as was the Texas Playboys’ rise to fame.
