Donnie, glad this post got popped back up to the top or I would have missed it. Great writing on the history and evolution of the Texas Legends. I think it's akin to studying how Robert Johnson became Blind Lemon Jefferson became Gatemouth Brown became Johnny 'Guitar' Watson became Stevie Ray Vaughn. New techniques and instruments but the same fundamental emotion underlying it all.
Wow, getting a little deep - now back to the shallow end.
"Houston is a wretched little town composed of about twenty shops, and a hundred huts, dispersed here and there, among trunks of felled trees. It is infested with methodists and ants." -Emmanuel Domenech, Catholic Missionary, 1848
