Ralph Mooney Live

Waylon Jennings long time pedal steel guitar player Ralph Mooney passed away today at the age of 83. It seems that there are times, where this could be a blog of obituaries, but that's only because all of the rad influences in our life are passing. You know that country music radio won't mention Ralph Mooney today (like with Huskey last week), and that's because they have all turned their back on the pioneers (I believe that they are all ashamed, of how they have destroyed the genre. But that's a different topic, for a different post). Ralph Mooney played steel for Waylon for years, but he also played with Buck Owens, Merle Haggard and Wynn Stewart. He also co-wrote "Crazy Arms" that became the first No. 1 hit for Ray Price. His influence will remain, and he will be missed...
