Coincidentally only a couple days before Waylon's death anniversary.Well noticed and posted. It's very rare, maybe unique, for the passing of a drummer to be recognised in a country music thread, but Richie Albright had about the most prominent role alongside Waylon Jennings in the Outlaw Movement (as
did the recently departed Billy Joe Shaver as reported here just a few months ago). Albright was country music's most influential drummer and it ain't close. Sad to see another Outlaw gone.
Went back and listened to the whole Waylon live again and not only was Waylon on point but the fact both Ralph Mooney and Richie were on point, was what made that album so special. Waylon was truly lucky to be surrounded by the likes of Ralph, Richie and Billy Joe
