Heavy hearing about the passing of Ben Dorcy III - "Lovie". This was us goofing off backstage at Austin City Limits a while back. He was known as the "King of the Roadies". At 92 he was a figure in the touring world and over time has been out with everyone; Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, June Carter, Buck Owens, Patsy Cline, Elvis Presley, Ray Price - and SO many more. He's always been around. Hope he's at peaceful rest sittin' side stage somewhere in Heaven with his famous pipe in hand. He was loved by many.
