    Robert Fisher: “After Huntsville, the Bonnevilles would boast two lead guitar players.”

    “The motel situation being what it was at the time, we were fortunate that my parents
    and my wife’s parents had plenty of room and were always glad to accommodate the
    guys in the band. When we were on the road, the guys in the band were always happy
    to stay in Parsons and Decaturville, which are about five miles apart. There was always
    plenty of food and good hospitality. My parents, in-laws, relatives, and friends were
    always glad to put the guys up for a night or two.”
    Frank Zappa: "Rock journalism is people who can't write interviewing people who can't talk for people who can't read."
