Hey ya fellow CAJTers,

While a lot has been said about Liv, Carly and Ben in here, I was left wondering about Alex and Hugh. I know, I know, I am far from having your knowledge, so, would you be nice enough to tell me about their work?

Hi Lilly,

I don't know anything about Hugh (ask Sam), but a few about Alex because my friend Tommy played with him and told me a bit about.

He didn't play any instrument. He was a covers singer, with a fantastic husky vodka-soaked voice, something like Dr John...

"The last time I saw Alex

He was leaving Santa Fe

With a bunch of round-eyed Buddhists

In a killer Chevrolet..."

The first time I asked the round-eyed buddhist I know, what killed Alex, he began to cry and couldn't answer. The second time, he said : "vodka".

If Sam or Serge can't send you some Alex's songs, I have a LP and a K7 of him, but no pickup or K7 reader to convert them in MP3... but as you know ... tout devient possible !

Lilly, soon you'll have one of Alex's cd's called "Dinnertime".

I also have some Videos where Hugh & Alex are singing with the whole "Taylor Gang" sitting on my JT page.

I know that Hugh had made an album waaay back when, but i am not sure if it ever was commercial released, at least i haven't ever seen nor heard it.

I really like Alex's voice and the tasteful way he deliver his well written, and carefully arranged tunes. I would compare his voice more with Greg Allman than Dr.John. Lots of his songs also have this "Southern Rock" feel like the Allman Brothers or Lynyrd Skynyrd had.

Or like Tommy Talton... all these guys belonged to the "round eyed budhists in a killer Chevrolet" gang.
I wonder why Tommy didn't play on Dinnertime, while the rest of Cowboy do ?

I could ask him, but as you know people who made the 70's don't remember...
