I used to risk my life and jail to sneak in, under age, to hear Bernie Sneed play the Hammond B3 in this band.  Tommy Chong was a dangerous dude in these days and one hell of a guitar player.  Little Daddy and Harry Walker and the Hi Fives were seminal R&B groups playing the real deal, underground, in clubs that your momma would not you going to: Smilin’ Buddha, New Delhi, etc., strippers with pasties, drag queens, heroin addicts.  Wes used to chew gum in six eight and play in four four.  He had black plastic coated bass strings (probably Rotosound from England) 10 years before the rest of us.
