DOBIE GRAY

DOWNLOAD: Drift Away

I cried when I heard Dobie Gray died today. Crazy, huh?

I was only 14, but God…when I heard the twang of the guitar that opened the song and then his deep, buttery smooth voice, it just cut right through me. And 38 years later, if that song comes on I feel the same way I did on that summer day when it first played through my Dad’s car radio…

  1. Thank you for my memories listening to that beautiful song, and of you as that 14 year old sensitive sweet young boy/man.
