Happy Birthday to Texas Tornado Augie Meyers

Wishing the great Augie Meyers a very happy birthday, today May 31, 2011.

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Augie since I was fifteen years old (a long time ago…). He’s been a good friend and constant source of inspiration and motivation for me in music. Now, on his birthday (I won’t say which one), with Augie doing well after a kidney transplant last year and a tour with the Texas Tornados in the works, I give you this post; my thanks to legendary Texas musician: Augie Meyers.

Happy Birthday to Augie


Who’s Augie? Performer, songwriter, keyboardist, accordionist, vocalist most notably with Sir Douglas Quintet, Texas Tornados and as a side man to Bob Dylan, John Hammond, Jr. and many more… See Augie Meyers on tour this summer with Texas Tornados
