Buddy Moss

Mr. Moss has an interesting story to tell. Wikipedia has a pretty good bio of his life: "In an incident that has never been fully recounted or explained, Moss was arrested, tried, and convicted for the shooting murder of his wife and sentenced to a long prison term."

There's also another bio here. This one states it was the murder of his girl friend. He can also be found on You Tube.

They've Got a Right to Sing the Blues

It's a tribute to these guy's spirit that they could enjoy themselves once in a while, even in these circumstances.
