The Celebration of Gordon Cox Life



The Train Track Troubadours performed for the event.


The Celebration of Gordon Cox Life was a musical wake. Musicians who Gordon had played with throughout the years came out in his honor for this fitting and final farewell. 

Bill from the group Killer Whales done a fine job of hosting



The turn out was spectacular.




Gordon had performed a lot with Terry Beck over the years
Terry Beck far left had the crowd cheering

Many thanks to Gordons family, and the crew at 612 Kitchen & Cocktails for such a successful and memorable afternoon.


On a personal note. 
Gordon and I had several things in common. Besides performing with Congas, and also working with the Train Track Troubadours, we both had diabetes.  
It wasn't until recently that I also learnt of his motorcycle interest. Although he rode a Ducati I wouldn't of held that against him because he was such a free spirit and I am sure he will be missed by many.

We should all be so well loved and well thought of....

Stix Douglas - 12 String Session



The term "Sessions" is for when there are songs put together in sort of a musical group or theme.
This is just one of the better videos to be able to showcase in combination  with a 12 String Guitar. along with  some of the mellower song choices  that still hold up well over time .

Already Gone Clip



One small clip of many songs I have sung and now play as a Solo Performer by my favorite group the Eagles. I enjoy using it as the last song of the evening a lot of times...thus the reason....I'm Already Gone.....www.stixdouglas.com

Stix Douglas - Silver Wings



A older country standard that many performers have done over the years. A favorite of mine from Merle that touches my life in ways that can now be explained.
Written about a love that is planning on leaving on the "Silver Wings"  I feel compelled to mention the fact that I am such a backwards person and so different from many that I have never flown in a Commercial plane and don't intend to.. Although this is just a shortened version you get an idea of what I sound like doing it..

They say a good picture is worth a thousand words. Well rather then filling this with junk no one would take the time to read, I thought it best to fill it with a little of what  couldn't be done in long hand.

Doing a performance for the Desoto VFW over Memorial Day Week end









Right after leaving Pensacola HD after having to wait an hour to purchase a Harley Battery. because of No Internet. I got trapped on Highway 10 for more than another hour awaiting Thundershowers to slow to head back to Biloxi, MS



723 miles and over eleven & 1/2 hours on the rd only to come home to several downed trees blocking my driveway, caused by the storms while on vacation. But I am blessed & Thankful I have a Son, the tools, equipment and the God given know how to clear the obstruction.

If its not one thing its another. First it was several fallen trees across the driveway. Next a broken water line. But I thank God for the challenges, I am also thankful for having a Son and his help after having had several failed attempts to repair the leak,& three days without water. It was his determination as to why we were finally successful. Happiness is a much needed shower...
