I would like to post very respectfully to those of you here on this first day of the New Year 2016, a Happy one to you all.
I have seen some posts here regarding Bobby and myself and hope to bring some light to any questions any of you may have regarding us or Bobby's friendship/relationship with Duane. Also to enlighten anyone who is interested in the stories told by Bobby. I see that there are a few people that are confused over which story to believe. Everyone has their own version of a story, no two is alike. But we will do our best to answer any questions you may have.
All I know is that Bobby loved Duane..the first time they met was when he was with Delaney and Bonnie, not at Stax. Despite what anyone may say, Bobby loved Delaney very much. Our story is long and involved, but it was never a sordid one. We came together in a beautiful way and that did not involve some of the things I have heard or read. Bobby never "ran off with Delaney's wife" (me). I left Delaney, sadly due to his addiction and abuse. That story is of course in Bobby's book...my version is slightly different, that is how stories are.
Thank you and ABB for allowing our participation in this site.

This is CoCo (and Bobby when he so chooses to answer),
I don't know who the Bonnie is and am not concerned about that. TwoBug was our publishing name, however that turned out to be Bobby's. So there you have it.

CoCo and Bobby, it's good to see you two here. I really enjoyed the posts years ago on the Steve Hoffman Music forum. Didn't that lead Bobby to write his book?

Hi Salcapitano...Thank you, it is a pleasure to be here, the Steve Hoffman Forum was epic, and yes it led to Bobby writing his book and our friendship with Marc Roberty.
And Pops42...thank you so much, and too for mentioning the dvd Road to Austin, that was a fabulous show..our only regret is losing Stephen Bruton so soon.
Still not sure of the best way to respond to an individual post here.

Thank you so much, glad to know that you were on the Hoffman Forum. We could not believe how that whole thing took off like fire agfter simply answering a question which was who was the girl on the inside sleeve.

That was pretty amazing. All from one simple question. I don't remember what the answer was back then but did the members of D&D appear together on Bobby's first album and if so did they play together on a song or as individuals throughout the disc.

Bobby says: we had George Harrison and Klaus Voorman, Carl was not on the first record except Country Life with Jim Keltner which was recorded in California at another time. So the answer to that question is that Bobby had George Harrison and Eric and Klaus Voorman, Jim Gordon all in the same room at the same time recording. Andy Johns behind the board.
They overdubbed Bobby Keys and Jim Price.

I've got to think up some more questions for you. Right now I'm drawing blanks. Too much info stored in my head. I read in Galadrial Allman's book that Duane seriously considered joining D&D. In a letter to his wife, Donna, he states that he was offered a lot of money to join the band along with a 20% cut. I had never heard that before reading the book and seeing the letter. I would assume that the rest of the band was in agreement on this.

Bobby: It never went to the table, none of this is true. All they (Bobby and Eric)did was ask Duane if he wanted to join the band, and Duane said no, and that he wouldn't leave his brother. No negotiations were ever discussed and certainly no money or percentages. The Dominos had already signed their contracts, they were with Robert Stigwood at the time and there were only four members, that was that. We still have the original contracts. There was no Duane. He was paid a session fee, and hired purely as a session musician and was also doing a session with Sam The Sham at the same time in studio B at Criteria.
Duane never thought it over (re being asked to be in the Dominos), he was asked and said right then no I can't do it.

So far this is a pretty interesting thread. It brought back some memories about the Steve Hoffman forum and how the Bobby Whitlock's book came about. An excellent book I might add.

It's amazing how such a small question in an online music forum or the fact that Eric and Duane were in the same city at the same time can come up with something historic or creative. History can really turn on a dime can't it.

Who would have known that it was going to turn out the way it did, quite naturally..the best way. Bobby wrote for 17 months straight. And then one day it stopped. There are over 500 stories, most would never make it into the book. For some reason the stories keep flowing. Thanks very much.

So how about one of those 500 stories. Bobby has had one hell of a career. The D&B time and the D&D time are some of my favorite music. It was a great time for music and the man was a big part of it. Oh to be a fly on the wall. So much emotion. How did you come upon Hittin the Web with the Allman Brothers?

There is talk of another book because of the many stories. Bobby was indeed an integral part of many historical events in musical history in the seventies. In fact, I think he was in more places than anyone in those days from Stax, D&B,George Harrison,Derek & The Dominos,The Stones, Capricorn and more. His contribution to each of these were more than just being a musician, his endless ideas, songwriting and singing influenced all of these people.
Bobby is the only musician that played on three seminal albums of the seventies: Layla, All Things Must Pass and Exile on Main Street. Layla (Derek & The Dominos) of course being his own band.
He has never considered himself a sideman, he feels quite the contrary and will argue with you about that, and rightfully so.
I was on the web searching for something and saw a post that happened to be from this site, just like the Hoffman Forum.
The information regarding Bobby, myself and others was completely wrong.
Thank you

I'm well acquainted with guitarist Les Dudek. He played on a Capricorn album with Bobby. Les is credited on one song, however, (and bear in mind our discussion was many years later) Les thought that he'd actually played on numerous cuts. I know that back in that day, due to contractual arrangements etc., musicians might appear on a certain release but not receive any credit once it was released.

Does Bobby recall Les's participation on the Rock Your Sox off release and how much Les may have contributed?

Also, what are some releases that Bobby may have been involved in that he never received credit for?
