I had been in a heavy rock group with Bob for six years.   He left Saffire and I missed jamming with him for years.  I was happy to rejoin him in a group that actually had gigs.  Mike was a great front man and band manager.  He always kept us rockin' and everyone in the group was cool.  This is where I met Murry and Mark.  Mark was a groovy multi-talented musician, and Murry was a guitar virtuoso.  I continue to jam with Murry in and around Austin to this day.  The Hub City Rockers played mainly in Lubbock and Midland/Odessa.  We once worked up The Battle of New Orleans, Chantilly Lace and Wooly Bully for a good paying gig for some older folks.  We also rocked the Boondoggle Festival and played Fat Dawgs in Lubbock with Delbert McClinton.  Mike, Bob and Mark continue to gig in Lubbock in various bands and combos.
