Ah…Will Sampson. Ten Bears and “Chief ” from …Cuckoo’s Nest. That guy was one of my all-time favorite acquaintances.

I got lucky enough to party with him several times, as a younger man. He was a huge fan of Jerry Jeff Walker, Guy Clark…Jimmie Dale Gilmore. And he always took time to talk with me at the after show parties, courtesy of the Golden Bear…my first Ca. gig.

He was an artist of Iron words. Thanks for the memory …Hadn’t thought of him in awhile.

Doeren will be missed 6 yrs. down the road by those that couldn’t get over the obvious.
