||Today at a convenience store I ran into a friend of mine, Lanky Moore, who lives here in Teague. Lanky has long been the lead singer for Diamondback Texas which has become Billy Joe Shavers' band. Lanky knows all about my love of Mickey and his music, and he made it a point to tell me that they performed "Why You Been Gone So Long" in honor of Mickey at the Frank Brown Festival. He also emphasized how thrilled they were to meet Mamie.
