Today I took my parents and wife to see Asleep at the Wheel and the Quebe Sisters perform A Ride with Bob. Ray Benson, the tall and lanky long-haired guitarist, took us on a bus ride. We travelled the highway from Texas to Tulsa. We accompanied Benson and the mythical Bob Wills on a bus tour through Wills’s extraordinary life. On the road, the two icons of Texas music joked, sang, picked guitars, played fiddles, and recalled the history of the legendary western swing band Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys.
