Barely recall the April 4, 1968 incident. I was too young. I do remember my father hauling tail downtown to pick my mother up at her job.

The D.O. Years, now that I remember very well. Danny was a respectful "Yes Sir" guy to everyone. Well maybe not to Iron Horsemen. Toughest SOB to ever walk a Memphis street, bar none!

I worked for Danny and he acted like a gentleman until you got on his wrong side. He was a lowlife that preyed on the weak.

I worked for Danny for over 6 years. I can tell you the good in a short time, and the bad well that goes on and on. You can google Danny and find out alot. The case documents are listed on line. If you want to know more let me know.

I remember the rioting in Memphis prior to the assasination. My Dad was in the VA hospital and we had to go in the middle of the nite a lot. He was very sick and did pass away later on. But at that time the national guard were out making sure the curfews were obeyed. One nite when we came thru going to the hospital we were stopped and then escorted on to the hospital. It was kind of scarry.

I met Danny years ago over on Airways and a couple of other places - he was decent to me, but made some bad choices, and so did his son..

used to see his sister outat a few places back in the day if I remember...Cowboy, confetti maybe Houli's

Danny as a Memphis legend..in the wrong way, but lots of people wanted just to mess with him and hedidn't take that crap off of anyone..

if you dance wth the Devil, you go down, sorry to say

I worked on and off for Danny Owens and Steve in Memphis.
Danced in all their clubs. I was one of the only girls allowed to do such hopping back and forth.
I also was working for Danny when all the shit went down.
All of it!! Just confused as to what you want to know.
Perhaps if you can clue me in I may be able to help you.
I will check back to the thread and hopefully help answer your question Peace

I worked for Danny Owens as a Dancer. I can tell you one thing, He treated the girls that worked for him like Gold. Not his personal girls mind you, That was a different story. but girls like me that just wanted to work. One day a black pimp came down from Chicago with his girl. Customer wanted me and not her. So her Pimp decided i was going to give him my money. I said ok stay right here, I will be right back. Went to the dressing room called Danny and around 10 minutes later. He was out the door. He was very protective of his girls. And was very anti drug in his clubs, drug were done and yes even sold. But not under the name Danny Owens. Was a bad perception. Anyway I could go on for days
