Yes, I saw him MANY times...being from Virginia, and actually played harp with im in the Late 70s in Tempe Arizona, at a place called "Dooley's". He was a great player, great guy, and MAN could that guy PARTY!
I had a friend who was a big fan of Roy's. He played me some tapes and I was sufficiently impressed to tag along when my buddy went to see Roy in '82. Good show, but not as good as I'd expected. We went again in '83 and it was VERY disappointing. Gave him the benefit of the doubt and one last chance in '84. That third show was horrible. Guess it was just too late.
