Ah, that Texas Drummer Boy: Johnny Cuviello!

| | Comments (1) | TrackBacks (0)

Drummer Johnny Cuviello and steel guitarist Herb Remington wrote and recorded this song as part of Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys way back in 1947 -- with Johnny's drum solos alternating with a catchy steel melody. Sixty years later, last October, on Johnny's 92nd birthday, they played it again at Patsy's Cowgirl Cafe in Austin, Texas. Go, Johnny, go!

MORE: Here's a number from a 1964 Texas Playboys TV appearance in Dallas -- Joe Andrews sings "You Can't Break a Heart," a release on the Longhorn label:

Earlier I posted two other videos from this same TV appearance: Billy Jack Wills singing "Rockabye Baby Blues" and Luke Wills singing "Take Me Back to Tulsa."

My sister and I are old acquaintances of Johnny Cuviello, in fact at one time my sister Agnes Waggoner dated Johnny back then.,she still lives in Bakersfield. This was while Johnny was drummer in a band at the famous BLACKBOARD in Bakersfield , California. We had lost contact with him and I am so glad I located this story about him on my computer. Please e mail me back if possible.
God Bless you Johnny.

Eufaula, Ok.
