The picture was taken April 10, 1956. We were opening for Elvis Presley at the Fair Park Coliseum in Lubbock, Texas. Buddy is playing Elvis' D-18 Martin, I'm playing Buddy's Stratocaster and Don Guess (out of picture) is playing Bill Black's bass. Jerry Allison is playing DJ Fontana's drums and that is Jerry peeking over them in the back.
