John Ware - The Hot Band

THE HOT BAND
IN 1975
IN 1995
IT TOOK A LOT OF NERVE
FOR EMMY TO HIT THE ROAD
WITH THE HIPPIES AND THE RINGERS
CALLED THE HOT BAND,
BUT HIT IT SHE DID.
THE ORIGINAL BAND
DIDN’T LAST LONG,
BUT THOSE FEW YEARS
PRODUCED SOME AMAZING TRACKS.
IT STILL SENDS CHILLS THROUGH ME
TO THINK OF SOME SHOWS
AND SOME SESSIONS.
AS THE REPLACEMENTS CAME,
THE MUSIC STAYED ON TARGET,
BUT REALLY THERE WAS NOTHING
LIKE THE ORIGINAL.
I LOVED THAT BAND.
I STILL LOVE THE MEMORY.
ACCORDING TO CMT
THE GREATEST COUNTRY BAND
OF ALL TIME.
I SERIOUSLY DOUBT IT.
BUT
IT WAS A GREAT BAND.
