Ditto to your quote on Billy Joe's class act, Gordon. I too was in the front row. I hard pressed my gal to go with me to drive 200 miles and stay in a hotel that we could hardly afford just to get the chance to see B.J. again. It was worth every penny. Seen him at Expo Gardens in Peoria, IL in late 60's/early 70's and have followed his heartfelt music ever since.
Made our chilly weather seem so much more bearable.
Thanks again, B.J. ! Wishing you the best and hoping you continue to warm your audiences and followers for many more years!
