Rods n Rides / Bike Car & Truck Show

by STIX Douglas

There is nothing like blurring the lines of combining two of my passions. One for riding and the other being performing my music. 
This was the Sixth year that the Action Riders  had put on this Rods n Ride event. I was just fortunate to be the musical entertainment for it. Had a great time kicking out the tunes without being told to TURN

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

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..

2016 STIX Year in Pictures

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.

Glad that's over.

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...
